Want to add some flash to tired old soloing phrases?

Try spicing them up with legato!⁠

Legato is a great way to add an extra flourish to a lick.

The term “legato” means playing something “in a smooth, flowing manner without breaks between notes.”⁠

This is the kind of sound we can achieve with multiple hammer-ons and pull-offs.⁠

When we pick multiple notes on a string – the contact of the pick to the string (no matter how fast) will cut off the sound of the previous note.⁠

When we play something using multiple hammer-ons and pull-offs, we don’t experience that sound – instead we get the sound off one note coming right after another.⁠
