Guitar pull-offs are problematic for a number of reasons.
- A lot of times, the sound just diminishes right after you pull off, and you get no sound at all.
- The other thing that can happen is, as you pull off on these middle strings, like say the D and the G, you run into other strings and it causes a bunch of interference.
So, I want to share with you an acoustic guitar pull-off exercise that’s going to clean up your pull-offs and make the tone outstanding. It’s a really simple guitar exercise.
Did this help you? Do you have your own tips for getting cleaner pull offs?
Useful content thanks. Would love to have seen a close up though. If someone has never done a pull off, they still wouldn’t know how from this video.. ie after plucking the note are you then lifiting straight up with the fretting finger or are you pulling across the fretboard like a one finger strum?
When you pull the finger off you pull down, toward the next string, as if plucking with your frethand.
Very nice technique that works!
Enjoyed the lesson,nice exercise.I’m assuming that you mute the string below the pull off string as you go from 1st string too 6th string.
