Ex 1: Starting at the 17th fret of the first string, pick the note with an upstroke and pull off to the 12th fret, continuing right away to upstroke the following 4 strings. Then, downstroke the low note(12th fret first string), hammer-on the 15th fret, and downstroke the following 4 strings. Play the last note with an upstroke.
