Same ol’ tune, different techniques…we’re gonna make sure we’re not up Cripple Creek without a hammer.
For the hammer-ons, should we be really hitting that hammer hard? I feel like I can’t hear it that well, or at least as well enough as when Ben plays it.
No, it shouldn’t be really hard. It just needs to be decisive
In the slide lesson, you slide from the A to the B. In this lesson you hammer on from A to A#/Bb. That dissonance kills me (not in a good way) when you simultaneously pick the B natural on the second string. Is there a reason you do it this way?
When you get up to speed it sounds good, but it sounds terrible slow. You can’t easily hammer on all the way to the B note, and the dissonance is great done fast.
Yeah, I started to see that when I re-watched the preview video. Practicing slow… it’s awful.
One thing people do when they get more proficient, is more the Bb when they hit the B string
Yes, sounds bad slow, but provides a necessary dissonance when played faster
