Practice with SGS Lesson 22!

Back with Lesson 22! I feel pretty confident about the concept of Hammer-ons. It's the Pull-Offs I'm more concerned about. I did my best to figure it out myself. Let me know if I got it right and maybe even some more feedback?
those are just pull off, if i were you id work on going up and down the neck with a simple 4 note chromatic scale and work on getting comfortable with the guitar, but forget to use alternate picking

Well, I was only showing Pull-off attempts in this video because I feel they’re what I need to work on most. Hammer-ons don’t really feel like a problem. I’m pretty good with some scales and feel comfortable. This was just awkward because I’ve never tried pull-offs before really.
 
So the same friend I mentioned before on your last video had this same problem as well and I made it click for him. I can't guarantee it's the same issue for you, but it might help. Sometimes for beginners, it seems like a pull off is just lifting your finger off the string and then you hear the other note, which is what my friend was doing. But a pull off is almost more like plucking the string with the finger you're pulling off. You're kinda supposed to swipe it downward with your finger as a pluck. So instead of lifting your finger straight up, pull downward, but dont bend the string.
This helped quite a bit! Thank you again for some more feedback!!! I’ll definitely try to practice more with this in mind.
