What is this guitarist is doing? "Take me up in the Spirit" Misty Edwards

I am trying to learn how to play the intro part to "Take me up in the Spirit" by Misty Edwards. Is anyone familiar with the technique the guitarist is using in this song?

Thanks!

He's got a capo on the 2nd fret. Start off with an A power chord shape and then you're doing pull-offs on the D and G string like this...


e------------------------------------------------
b------------------------------------------------
g--------------2-----------2--2p0------------
d--------------2--2p0--------------0---------
a------0--0 --0--------0----------------------
E------------------------------------------------

you repeat that 3 times and then go to an F major then G major chord.

That'll be $25.00 (hahaha)

Wow, you are amazing!!! I never would have figured that out. I was trying to play it without the capo. I will have to practice that a few times to get it. Pull-offs and stuff are new to me. Thank you so much!

You are welcome, I'm happy to help.

Focus on accuracy and clarity when practicing hammer-ons/pull-offs, not speed. When hammering, be sure to strike the note with your fingertip only and hit it directly behind the fret (not the middle of the fret.) Hitting the note against the fret produces a stronger note.
Pulling-off requires a slight downward pull, in order to get a clear note.

GO SLOWLY! Speed will come with time.

Good luck and be blessed
