Developing Legato - Part 3

Hey guys! So the legato is getting a bit more difficult in this lesson. We will focus on essential pull-off patterns that will strengthen that technique.

Things to focus on:

  • Play with a metronome
  • Start slowly and don't move ahead until all fingers are ready
  • A hammer-on should be quick and precise
  • Observe my left hand
  • Keep your left hand as parallel to the fretboard as possible
  • Maintain a steady breath and posture; this will help you stay relaxed
  • If it hurts, then stop
  • Legato is difficult, so be patient:)

Thank you for viewing this lesson. I hope that I helped you. Please give a good rating and feel free to comment. I will write back! Also be sure to check out my other lessons. Thank you!
