Hello:
I'm working on Muris Varajic's Jazz Swing Lead lesson and in the tab is a symbol L, meaning a "tied note" for the previous note:


--------|-------7---------------------|
----5--|--L---------6-------L--------|
--------------------------------------|

So, what's a "tied note" anyway?

Thanks for any help,
Pappy

I think this is the best explanation smile.gif

"When a pair of notes is tied, the second note of the pair is not plucked or attacked again. Instead, the first note is plucked/attacked and held for the duration of both notes."

Thanks Sinisa: So the technique is similar/same as vibrato or sustain? Sounds like Muris V. is using vibrato, so wouldn't that take a different tab symbol? By the way, I've been trying to work up enough courage (I am so a beginner player) to attempt one of your lessons.

Tied note ties together two notes of the same pitch. Basically it extends the duration of the note by adding up their rhythmic values.
In practice : pluck the note and hold it sustained for the duration of two note values added up. Usually on longer notes you would add vibrato but that indeed does have a different indication in the tab. You can check out Muris's slow videos and see if he adds vibrato to those particular notes.

It's the same note, those two notes represent one note (tied note - adds to the duration of initial note). How much duration? Check how long is the tied note, that much.
