Hammer-ons over large stretches

    I am currently learning the bass solo for The Great Escape by Seventh Wonder, and part of that solo involves doing a hammer-on from the 17th fret of the C string (6-String bass) to the 22nd fret. I'm having a lot of trouble getting a good volume from the hammer-on using my pinky, and I was wondering if anyone had any tips for hammering on such a large stretch like this.

    If your hands don’t allow a certain hammer on to work you might just have to use your other hand.
