a quick and easy way to make you playing more interesting. The
first chord shown on the guitar video below is the D major

The second chords shown are the G and C chords. You can
hammer on complete chords for a great effect. This particular
chord change is well known and you will probably recognise it.
Notice that I only hammer on a "short" two finger version of
the chord because I am not plucking all the strings.
Other chords shapes that will be easy to hammer on are the
Am shape and the E shape. these can be hammered on on top of a
full bar. The Doobie Brothers use this technique in the riff on
"Listen To The Music" and many of their other tracks. You need
to work on getting strength into the fingers to allow you to
hit the hammer on with good strength and pace. You can vary the
timing and the speed to the music you are playing.
