Watch the Hammers & Pulloffs: Level 1 online guitar lesson by Chris Buono from Guitar Gym: Hammers and Pull-Off Workouts

For the final Level 1 Hammer-On/Pull-Off Workout you're going to blast through all six strings in the 1st position playing hammer-ons and pull-offs that incorporate open strings. While that sounds like a walk in the park compared to the last workout don't be too sure about that. As you progress down the neck vertically towards the low E string, first playing hammer-ons, you'll reverse directions. For example, you'll start on the 1st string playing hammer-ons in an ascending direction followed by a shift to the next lower adjacent string (in this case the 2nd string) playing hammer-ons in a descending direction and so on. Once you get to the 6th string continuing that motion you'll jump back to the high E string, this time playing pull-offs, AND, this time each string will be played in an opposite direction as compared to what it was on the way down the first time. Get it?
