This is the eighth video in the Lead Guitar Quick-Start Series. In this lesson you will learn about legato technique, also known as hammer-ons and pull-offs. These two sub-techniques will give your picking hand a break and help to create a smoother sound option for your lead guitar playing.

Using legato technique is popular for playing lead guitar and guitar solos. This lesson will teach you exactly how to play hammer-ons and how to play pull-offs on guitar, so you can make full use of legato technique. You’ll also learn a few fun licks that make use of both hammer-ons and pull-offs.

Once you are finished with this lesson, you can find the next lesson in the Lead Guitar Quick-Start Series here:
