Techniques That Will Make You a Technical Guitar Player

The acoustic guitar is an amazing instrument. It allows people with limited knowledge the ability to be a rock star around the camp fire. But there is way more to it than just strumming the chords of Kumbaya. Here are a few tips and tricks you can try to make yourself a more technical guitar player.

Hammer Ons - A hammer on, in guitar lingo, mean almost slamming one of your fingers down on the a string on the fret board hard enough to create the note. This is one of the ways people play really fast guitar solos because it does not require any picking with the other hand. If done hard enough, the note should ring out just as if you pluck the string. Your acoustic guitar instructor should be able to demonstrate it pretty easily.

Pull Offs - A pull off is basically the complete opposite of a hammer on. In this instant, you remove your finger from the string on the fret board while pulling down on the string. In other words you are basically plucking the string with the finger you would use to hold down the note. A lot of times, hammer ons and pull offs are used together to create really fast guitar solos. Again it is difficult to explain, but your acoustic guitar instructor will have no problems showing you the correct technique and give exercises to work on so you can do it too.

Slide - A well placed slide is a great effect in music. What it is is the strumming hand strums, usually the sixth string, or the low E, while you hold down that string and either slide up the neck or down. It is the equivalent of a slide whistle or when someone just runs their hand down all the keys of a piano. It works well and sounds really cool either going into or out of a chorus. Try it, it's easy.

Pick Slide - A pick slide can sound like nails on a chalk board to a lot of people. This move almost always requires a guitar pick, unless you have long finger nails. Starting at the body, place the guitar pick, turned sideways, on the strings and slide it to the neck. This causes an almost static sound. This happens because the lower toned strings of a guitar are braided. It's a cool effect to try.

Those are just a few tips and tricks you can try to show off your acoustic guitar skills. But remember, practice makes perfect. Talk to your guitar instructor if you are curious about these moves and let them demonstrate them properly. Happy strumming.
