Ready, and Pull!

A Celtic Style Pull Off Lick

The pull off in this lick is inspired by the nimble slurs heard in Celtic music. They're often so quick they don't actually have a note value. They happen almost instantaneously. However, anything faster than a 16th note should get you the desired effect. It's all about finger preparedness, and quick execution. Try playing the lick really slow, but still doing the pull off as fast as possible. Then, bring the tempo up to speed slowly.
