    In a song our band plays, one of the important parts played a lot is
    --------------------------------
    -3-5----------------------------
    -----5-3------------------------
    --------------------------------
    It looks easy, but it's played real fast, and i cant get it. it's hammered on the G and pulled off to the D. I use my index and ring finger for this, are there any exersizes or something?

    If you hold both the D and A string down at the third fret with your index finger,then with your ring finger hammer-on across both strings, using your plucking finger to mute the A string.

    Or you could use the D and G strings if your index finger is better at hammer-ons and pull-offs.

    Or you could practice the piece until you get it the way you are playing it. :)

    Good Luck,

    Chris
