    just two questions on hammering:

    1. how do you play then hammer the same note (example how would you play --2-2h--)?

    2. how do you hammer an open string?

    thx for any help

    i dont think you can hammer the same note :)
    and you dont hammer an open string, you do a pull off instead

    You can't hammer the same note like 2-2h- but you can do it if it's 2-2h3 or whatever, you just play the note again then hammer on to 3.

    Hammering on to an open string if the tab shows --0h2-- then it's just the same as a normal hammer on but the plucked note is an open string. if it's shown --2h0-- then whoever tabbed it is a dufus. It should be shown --2p0-- which is just a hammer on in reverse.

    Sorry if I'm insulting your intelligence by explaining this. The things tabbed in your post are just dufus tabs posted by morons.

    Hope that helps.
