1 00:00:14,691 --> 00:00:16,766 Hi justin here again 2 00:00:16,766 --> 00:00:18,848 This is part 2 of the speed development 3 00:00:18,848 --> 00:00:22,189 And what we are gonna look up now is hammer on and flickoffs 4 00:00:22,189 --> 00:00:24,690 something you might be familiar with this already. 5 00:00:24,690 --> 00:00:30,066 But Im gonna pretend you dont know what hammer on and flickoffs are 6 00:00:30,066 --> 00:00:33,207 So, the idea of the hammerons is to play one note 7 00:00:33,207 --> 00:00:37,410 and then hammer the finger down very hard further up the string 8 00:00:37,410 --> 00:00:40,378 So , it creates the second note without having to pick it 9 00:00:40,378 --> 00:00:44,348 So, if i play this first note g using that 3 note string scale 10 00:00:44,348 --> 00:00:47,498 without using this hand 11 00:00:47,498 --> 00:00:51,170 I can hammer the note down and you can hear that just by hammering the finger down really hard 12 00:00:51,170 --> 00:00:56,059 I can get that second note 13 00:00:56,059 --> 00:00:59,860 Thats a hammer on!! and its really important that you "hammer it on" 14 00:00:59,860 --> 00:01:04,721 Yeah? Thats the whole point. If you just press on you dont get a very clear note 15 00:01:04,721 --> 00:01:08,605 The other thing that we are gonna look at today is flickoff 16 00:01:08,605 --> 00:01:12,278 Now sometimes it is called a pulloff, but i think it is more of a flicking action 17 00:01:12,278 --> 00:01:16,424 So, flick off is exactly the reverse of a hammer on. 18 00:01:16,424 --> 00:01:20,228 So if we start with those three fingers down and play this note with our little finger 19 00:01:20,228 --> 00:01:25,178 And then flick off the little finger. To release the note onto the second finger 20 00:01:25,178 --> 00:01:30,853 And flick off your second finger and then leave the note onto your first finger 21 00:01:30,853 --> 00:01:34,275 So, Thats the two techniques that we are gonna be covering 22 00:01:34,275 --> 00:01:37,659 What we r gonna do is be playing the scale up and down using these techniques. 23 00:01:37,659 --> 00:01:43,341 We are gonna focus just on the hammer ons first and just at pulloffs and then next, we take then togethar 24 00:01:43,341 --> 00:01:48,676 So, lets get to a close up now and then I will take you through doing the scale 25 00:01:48,676 --> 00:01:51,223 Ok, so here we are with the G major scale 26 00:01:51,223 --> 00:01:53,361 Starting off: we are gonna be looking at hammer ons 27 00:01:53,361 --> 00:01:57,384 Make sure your fingers are roughly in the right positions already 28 00:01:57,384 --> 00:02:00,723 You're gonna pick the first note 29 00:02:00,723 --> 00:02:03,979 Then hammer the next note down with your second finger 30 00:02:03,979 --> 00:02:08,655 Then next one with your little finger 31 00:02:08,655 --> 00:02:11,935 Now we are gonna keep playing the scale now just to get the technique concept 32 00:02:11,935 --> 00:02:34,039 Pick, Hammer hammer, pick,hammer hammer, pick,hammer hammer, pick hammer hammer 33 00:02:34,039 --> 00:02:40,676 Hopefully you can see that the action of hammering is quite really hammering it down really hard 34 00:02:40,676 --> 00:02:48,938 as you can. The idea is to try and get the second two notes, The notes that you hammered on to be around the same volume as the first note 35 00:02:48,938 --> 00:02:55,619 You should be able to achieve that. Do that sometimes by picking a little less hard and sometimes by hammering hard (ADVICE) . 36 00:02:55,619 --> 00:02:57,887 Thats the two options you have got to even it up, 37 00:02:57,887 --> 00:03:03,565 So, what i'd recommend that you practice now is doing each string four times before you move on 38 00:03:03,565 --> 00:03:06,871 And doing hammer ons as well on the way back down 39 00:03:06,871 --> 00:03:46,459 So you do this 40 00:03:46,459 --> 00:03:54,298 Once you have got that fast, May be move it to two 41 00:03:57,283 --> 00:04:08,228 If you wanna just have a mock around one time on each string , you can go. 42 00:04:08,228 --> 00:04:10,449 (Chuckles) that kinda thing!! 43 00:04:10,449 --> 00:04:13,163 That kinda exercise going on 44 00:04:13,163 --> 00:04:15,904 Now we are going to look at flick offs 45 00:04:15,904 --> 00:04:19,510 So in flickoffs we have little finger and all three fingers rougly in positions first 46 00:04:19,510 --> 00:04:49,858 (Pick,flick flick)*6 47 00:04:54,782 --> 00:04:56,043 Make sure you get the flicking motion 48 00:04:56,043 --> 00:05:25,303 Now try and do the four on each one . The same that we did for hammerons 49 00:05:29,180 --> 00:05:38,160 And you do twos again 50 00:05:38,160 --> 00:05:43,004 And if you wanna do..Then.. 51 00:05:43,004 --> 00:05:46,612 Just mocking around with it!! 52 00:05:46,612 --> 00:05:48,609 hey, Hope that you all got that cool. 53 00:05:48,609 --> 00:05:52,862 Remember that one of the keys to playing fast is by playing slow ( A GREAT ADVICE) 54 00:05:52,862 --> 00:06:01,113 So,Please when you are starting to do those hammer on and pulloffs try and do it really slowly. 55 00:06:01,113 --> 00:06:08,983 The coolest thing about the fastest guy ,about full on dead metal guitar players is if you slow down their stuff using half speed 56 00:06:08,983 --> 00:06:10,862 Or slowing down machine.. 57 00:06:10,862 --> 00:06:13,200 EVERY NOTE IS ABSOLUTELY PERFECTLY CLEAN 58 00:06:13,200 --> 00:06:16,577 Do not try and learn with your fingers wiggling around really fast 59 00:06:16,577 --> 00:06:20,420 without the notes sounding clear coz that will just sound shite 60 00:06:20,420 --> 00:06:23,423 Make sure you keep each note 100% clear 61 00:06:23,423 --> 00:06:26,005 If it is not clear ,if you are doing it too fast, slow down. 62 00:06:26,005 --> 00:06:31,435 The speed will happen by itself. May be not by itself but probablt with a little bit of help of a metronome(HUMOR) 63 00:06:31,435 --> 00:06:35,167 But generally, the speed will come if you keep things really really clean 64 00:06:35,167 --> 00:06:39,167 So, Have fun with that i will see you in a little while for cycling. I dont mean on a bike!!!!!
