Any good exercises to increase my hammer on speed? I can pull off extremely fast but I'm learning the solo from Crazy Train and Randy's hammers ons are extremely fast. I have decent speed now I just need to turn up the heat a little beat any suggestions?
When I was learning the solo, i actually "cheated" and tapped that little hammer on pull off run he does in the middle (I think that's what you are talking about). It sounded pretty good to me, but then again, I also thought my new Marshall MG sounded great, too.
Going off of what MetalMusicianAl said, practice your scales with the legato technique. Which is just picking the first note and then playing all the others using hammer ons.
