Just watched the "experimental video lesson" and all I can say is Thank You Nick! That helped me work on something I never would have figured out by myself. Im not up to speed yet but Im getting there. Thanks again

I don't understand pull offs or hammer ons.

I've been using my right hand to pluck the string then putting and moving my left to and from different frets, but it seems like you describe it all as a left hand motion? I'm very confused. Any help appreciated.

We're like The Beatles, except there's four of us.

It's a combination. You do need to pluck the string you're hammering on to or pulling off of. The plucking is the right hand (if you're a right-hander). The fretting hand does the work of the hammer-on or pull-off.

You might want to use these lessons in conjunction with Nick's. They show some video of simple hammer-ons and pull-offs.
