I'm going through all the basics of my playing again and trying to fix poor technique. I'm on pull offs at the moment. In the past I've basically done the reverse of a hammer on and allowed the amount of gain I use to make it "sound." Obviously, that's poor technique and won't work when I dial back the gain.
Thing is, I'm not sure whether what I'm trying to do now is correct either. I know I'm meant to be using my fretting hand finger to "pluck" the string. When I'm fretting the note for the pull off, I find that I'm placing my finger slightly higher up, getting ready for the pluck. Instead of the tip of my finger, the note is fretted with the flesh just behind the tip.
Is this going to cause me issues further down the line? If I'm taking the time to relearn, I want to get it right now rather than having to relearn again in a few months. All help gratefully received!
