To help really master the pull-off technique, Tony teaches this great etude to help you practice the technique musically. This etude can be sped up over time as you gain comfort in the patterns.
- I'm gonna star talking about pull-offs right now.…We've already discussed pull-offs in the beginning section…but I just wanted to get into pull-offs in…a little more depth.…I'll be repeating a little bit of the material…that you've already covered but I wanted to…just get into some new areas…with some Etudes, some little musical examples…that feature pull-offs.…So just to begin…and you should be doing this with a metronome.…Were gonna do pull-offs on the first string,…second, third and fourth strings…and why don't we do this,…just pull-off of the ring for the first string…and just pull down like this so you have a nice snap.…
And then pull-off with the index on the second string.…And get under the string so it really snaps.…And do the same with the middle finger on the third string.…Get under it so it snaps.…I'm pulling down with all of these,…in real life I might push-up sometimes…but for this exercise I'm pulling down for everything.…Then for the fourth string.…Like that.…So lets just try that.…
And you can use any right hand finger you want.…
