A key distinction that Michael Hedges contributed to the world of guitar is the decoupling of the right and the left hand. That is to say up until his insight the right-hand was always plucking or strumming strings that a left hand was fingering. So they were coupled. In his technique they are independent and so the right-hand is now able to play bass notes on its own freeing up the left-hand to play on its own and vice versa. A very different musical effect is produced for the listener related to independence of line and visual interest while for the player a very different feeling in the body is produced. Technique fundamentally does involve most often hammer ons and pulloffs.
