    On a slap book by stephan ritcher i see a tech. called cross-hammer where you hammer entirely with the left hand on a different string.

    Like from G to G in octaves but only with a single right hand attack. How do you do that? Just hit harder or what?

    On mel bay's complete blues bass book, theres written to pull off to a dead note(on the same string). How'd i do that? Aren't 2 attacks from the right hand needed to play a dead note after a certain note.

    The left index finger dampens string (deadens)
    and ring finger performs hammer-on pull off.
  3. You could also mute with other fretting-hand fingers.
