Pull-offs: Part 3, "The Old Cat Died": Banjo Lessons: 2 Hammer-Ons and Pull-Offs

The Pull-off is a versitile left hand technique that is commonly used in most styles of playing and is kind of like the opposite to a hammer-on. The technique involves pulling off a fretted finger without plucking the string essentially giving you more notes for less work.
