Over the Hills and Far Away - with The Principles



Here is the notation and tab for this famous guitar part. In order to play this well, like it is supposed to sound, you have to have quite a developed left hand. If you have such a hand, you will play this easily. Many guitar students do not, and so I am going to show you what you need to do to learn this song.

The main difficulty is performing the hammers and pulls effectively. A great number of guitar students do hammers and pulls wrong. Hammers and pulls require finger stength, and finger independence. The hand can only be trained to do this smoothly by doing slow practice, best done using a metronome. If you use "The Principles of Correct Practice For Guitar", use the Basic Practice Approach as found in Chapter 5.
