Chromatic Scale descending

Hello,

I started with guitar a month ago and stumbled on your videos at YouTube. I thought itīs a very dedicated way to approach guitar playing. Of course I want to get better over time and so I like to start with your daily routines.

But one of the excercices I donīt understand and I hope you can enlighten me because I really want to start training this technique.

What i canīt figure out is the chromatic scale descending.

If I put my fingers on 12th to 9th fret simultanly and push down until the fretboard, I get a pull off sound if I pull my pinky into the palm. Should I just hover the fingers over the 12th to 9th fret or should they just touch the string?
Or should I really push down to the fretboard and how do I avoid the pull off sound?

Thank you :)

Im ot sure if I undeerstand your question completely maybe a video of you showing what you would like to ask and demonstrating it with the guitar would help.

Anyhow if you chromaticaly descent from 12 to 9 with finger 4 till 1 you should fret and hit first finger 4 on the 12 string than pull finger 4 to your palm and fret finger 3 on the 11th fret than hit it and so forth.

As pebber said there a dozens of videos about this subject from Pebber makes search on youtube



I hope will help

Thanks for the reply. I was misunderstanding one of the phrases in the videos and because of the ankle of the guitar I got confused and thought I have to push the string down with all fingers and then lift one after another (pinky,ring,..). Of course that would be a pull off.
So I just keep the fingers on the string barely touching it or as close to the string as possible. Well I know it was an odd beginner question but better save than sorry ;) back to practrice and thanks for the help.
