  • Hello everyone, we continue with this E.L. series, this time is some piece by Mauro Giuliani.

    This time I will talk about a subtle difference between slurs and hammer-on and pull-offs. A slur it is an articulation for playing legato where the first note is played normal while the note/s affected with the slur are played slightly softer than normal. Hammer-on an pull-of are a technique to make slurs on some stringed instruments (for example piano and harp can´t make a pull-off), another difference is that hammer-on and pull-off can be made in a way the accents are produced which is suitable for certain styles of music (f.e. Leo Brouwer stuff).
    The most important stuff is explained on the vid just after the spoken vid, don´t miss that, cause it will help you greatly for a wide range of lessons!

    I will refer to this topic and note grouping during the explanatory vids.
    Hope you like it. Have fun.
