Play notes legato with hammer-ons, pull-offs, and slides. Play through today’s examples from the Alex de Grassi Fingerstyle Guitar Method to hear the difference once legato embellishments are added.

These legato techniques can also be considered an articulation in themselves—especially when they are used to embellish a musical phrase.
