Top 10 Songs with Best Uses of Hammer Ons And/or Pull Offs

Hammer on and pull off are two of the most used and prominent techniques ever used. There are countless uses of these two techniques. But I am only going to mention them which are a big part of the song.

Btw, hammer on means striking on the notes. It makes a clearer sound when you're hammering on.
Pull off is the opposite of hammer on. It means when you're leaving/pulling the notes, it also makes a clear sound of notes.

These songs may be either hammer on, pull off or both. But most of the time hammer ons and pull offs are used together.
