I think both ways are right. I sometimes start with a hammer on out of nowhere and sometimes I pick the first note.Hello,
so i dont get it. Everyone says, legato is hammer ons and pull offs. But i have done some research in the holy www to Allan Holdsworth and there you get the answer, its all hammer ons and lifting up the Finger. And there is more to it. Hammer on the note is simple we all know it but in the "Allen Holdsworth way", you plug a note that you are holding with the index finger, then hammer on with the ring finger( in my case) and to get back, you lift the ring finger and hammer on with the index finger. So to round it up... no pull off.
And in the www they say its the true legato because off its fluent sound.
But in the Video here, its all hammer´s and pull offs.
So whats right?
All the best from Germany!
For me it depends on the finger and how fast I'm going. If I go fast I only touch the strings very lightly like just about enough to get the note out and move on.Ok, thanks for the replys.
There is a another question that is hitting me.
Should you play Legato with minimum amount of pressure in the fretting Hand?
I am asking because there are rumors out there about this.
