Can you explain or show exactly what you are trying to play. TAB notation,
exanple 1: a fourth string second fret hammer-on with the second
finger while holding a C chord
example 2: a fifth string second fret hammer-on with the second
finger while holding a G7 chord
I've had some success with lifting the third finger with the second
finger to do the hammer-on but I've also watched some instructional
video showing keeping the third finger on its assigned string while
the second finger does the hammer-on. I usually get a muted tone or
buzz from the hammer-on string hitting my finger on the next higher
Sort of tried what you describe - I do it the way you say the video shows, except I do it very quickly...like a choke-off. I hammer on with the buzz if you will, and that minimizes it and/or makes it less noticable if I do get a buzz started. But it also sounds in accord with my picking style, which is generally rather percussive and snappy - funk-like.
I can also control it by up stroking or down stroking the pluck - down stroke = buzz / up stroke = no buzz...so I've got a bit of control over it that way.
I also notice that I grab the chord very close to the fret, as I described my hammering elsewhere.
