Fast Legato Rock Technique #2 (Guitar Lesson RO-012) How to play

  • 0:15 - 0:17
    Hi justin here again
  • 0:17 - 0:19
    This is part 2 of the speed development
  • 0:19 - 0:22
    And what we are gonna look up now is hammer on and flickoffs
  • 0:22 - 0:25
    something you might be familiar with this already.
  • 0:25 - 0:30
    But Im gonna pretend you dont know what hammer on and flickoffs are
  • 0:30 - 0:33
    So, the idea of the hammerons is to play one note
  • 0:33 - 0:37
    and then hammer the finger down very hard further up the string
  • 0:37 - 0:40
    So , it creates the second note without having to pick it
  • 0:40 - 0:44
    So, if i play this first note g using that 3 note string scale
  • 0:44 - 0:47
    without using this hand
  • 0:47 - 0:51
    I can hammer the note down and you can hear that just by hammering the finger down really hard
  • 0:51 - 0:56
    I can get that second note
  • 0:56 - 1:00
    Thats a hammer on!! and its really important that you "hammer it on"
  • 1:00 - 1:05
    Yeah? Thats the whole point. If you just press on you dont get a very clear note
  • 1:05 - 1:09
    The other thing that we are gonna look at today is flickoff
  • 1:09 - 1:12
    Now sometimes it is called a pulloff, but i think it is more of a flicking action
  • 1:12 - 1:16
    So, flick off is exactly the reverse of a hammer on.
  • 1:16 - 1:20
    So if we start with those three fingers down and play this note with our little finger
  • 1:20 - 1:25
    And then flick off the little finger. To release the note onto the second finger
  • 1:25 - 1:31
    And flick off your second finger and then leave the note onto your first finger
  • 1:31 - 1:34
    So, Thats the two techniques that we are gonna be covering
  • 1:34 - 1:38
    What we r gonna do is be playing the scale up and down using these techniques.
  • 1:38 - 1:43
    We are gonna focus just on the hammer ons first and just at pulloffs and then next, we take then togethar
  • 1:43 - 1:49
    So, lets get to a close up now and then I will take you through doing the scale
  • 1:49 - 1:51
    Ok, so here we are with the G major scale
  • 1:51 - 1:53
    Starting off: we are gonna be looking at hammer ons
  • 1:53 - 1:57
    Make sure your fingers are roughly in the right positions already
  • 1:57 - 2:01
    You're gonna pick the first note
  • 2:01 - 2:04
    Then hammer the next note down with your second finger
  • 2:04 - 2:09
    Then next one with your little finger
  • 2:09 - 2:12
    Now we are gonna keep playing the scale now just to get the technique concept
  • 2:12 - 2:34
    Pick, Hammer hammer, pick,hammer hammer, pick,hammer hammer, pick hammer hammer
  • 2:34 - 2:41
    Hopefully you can see that the action of hammering is quite really hammering it down really hard
  • 2:41 - 2:49
    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
  • 2:49 - 2:56
    You should be able to achieve that. Do that sometimes by picking a little less hard and sometimes by hammering hard (ADVICE) .
  • 2:56 - 2:58
    Thats the two options you have got to even it up,
  • 2:58 - 3:04
    So, what i'd recommend that you practice now is doing each string four times before you move on
  • 3:04 - 3:07
    And doing hammer ons as well on the way back down
  • 3:07 - 3:46
    So you do this
  • 3:46 - 3:54
    Once you have got that fast, May be move it to two
  • 3:57 - 4:08
    If you wanna just have a mock around one time on each string , you can go.
  • 4:08 - 4:10
    (Chuckles) that kinda thing!!
  • 4:10 - 4:13
    That kinda exercise going on
  • 4:13 - 4:16
    Now we are going to look at flick offs
  • 4:16 - 4:20
    So in flickoffs we have little finger and all three fingers rougly in positions first
  • 4:20 - 4:50
    (Pick,flick flick)*6
  • 4:55 - 4:56
    Make sure you get the flicking motion
  • 4:56 - 5:25
    Now try and do the four on each one . The same that we did for hammerons
  • 5:29 - 5:38
    And you do twos again
  • 5:38 - 5:43
    And if you wanna do..Then..
  • 5:43 - 5:47
    Just mocking around with it!!
  • 5:47 - 5:49
    hey, Hope that you all got that cool.
  • 5:49 - 5:53
    Remember that one of the keys to playing fast is by playing slow ( A GREAT ADVICE)
  • 5:53 - 6:01
    So,Please when you are starting to do those hammer on and pulloffs try and do it really slowly.
  • 6:01 - 6:09
    The coolest thing about the fastest guy ,about full on dead metal guitar players is if you slow down their stuff using half speed
  • 6:09 - 6:11
    Or slowing down machine..
  • 6:11 - 6:13
    EVERY NOTE IS ABSOLUTELY PERFECTLY CLEAN
  • 6:13 - 6:17
    Do not try and learn with your fingers wiggling around really fast
  • 6:17 - 6:20
    without the notes sounding clear coz that will just sound shite
  • 6:20 - 6:23
    Make sure you keep each note 100% clear
  • 6:23 - 6:26
    If it is not clear ,if you are doing it too fast, slow down.
  • 6:26 - 6:31
    The speed will happen by itself. May be not by itself but probablt with a little bit of help of a metronome(HUMOR)
  • 6:31 - 6:35
    But generally, the speed will come if you keep things really really clean
  • 6:35 - 6:39
    So, Have fun with that i will see you in a little while for cycling. I dont mean on a bike!!!!!
