Hello Ben,

I have a question.

With the land of legato 2 every time you have to tap a string where you dont have a finger on.
If you have a pattern on the 6xth string at the end you tap another note on the 5th string.

How can i do that without making string noice?

Thanks in advance.

Hi Tim,

Good question !

The noise issue is always a potential problem when hammering on to a string and then going back to another string above it. Lifting off the B string is the problem area. The key is to maximize the strength of the next picked note on the E string in order to drown out any potential noise from the B string. So making the note above it as positive and clear as possible will help to nullify the noise from an open B string.

The 2nd thing to make sure is that when you pull off your finger from the B string, don't actually 'pull it off'. Just think only about fretting and playing the next note above it on the E string. That way your finger should just automatically come off the B string in a more gentle way, not in a real 'pull off'. If you pull off the B string in a stronger way then it will sound the B string, giving you unwanted noise.

The other thing to try to do is to have a picking hand position which covers the strings so that if you need to, you can silence the B if it rings. But this is more of a 'cure' rather than a prevention.

The other issue of noise occurs when you first hammer onto the B string. If you leave a finger fretting on the E string and then hammer onto the B, the noise will bleed together. Try to lift your fingers slightly off of the strings when you're not using them. This will reduce the chances of notes bleeding into each other.

I hope that helps smile.gif

This is an issue that we all have to contend with so it's not just you - don't worry !

Ben
