Watch the Hammerhead online guitar lesson by TrueFire from Acoustic Guitar on the Go

Hammerhead is a video guitar lesson presented by David Hamburger and is sourced from 30 Beginner Fingerstyle Blues Licks You MUST Know

Hammer-ons, pull-offs, and slides all work great in the open position, and they're a big part of creating a fluid fingerstyle sound. They're also great techniques to bring back into the electric realm, too. Some of my favorite electric players make extensive use of the open position, and these three articulations are integral to the styles of Freddie King, Earl Hooker, and - if you count capo'd playing as open position playing, which I do - Albert Collins and Gatemouth Brown.
