Watch the Using Volume Swells online guitar lesson by Dave Celentano from Classical Concepts for Rock Guitar

Although I used a hair tie to dampen the strings and prevent unwanted string noise, this technique could be done with no dampening device and a little extra practice. The first and second techniques to master include a hammer-on from nowhere followed by a quick volume swell produced by turning the volume knob on the guitar quickly from 0 to about 3 and back to 0. For best results use a clean tone and turn your amplifier's volume up enough so that you can hear the volume swell effect clearly (this may involve turning the amp up to 5 or more).
