I heard some where ,can't remember where ,that another name for hammer-on/pull-offs are called slurs. I am wonder if this is true or not.
#3
Lol I could make such a good post right now but I'd get banned. I've never heard them called that though.
#4
yeah
theyre slurs...its when you blow in your horn and just finger notes without articulating them over again, eg you play a c on trumpet and move to a d, just finger it instead of tounguing it again. it works just like a hammer and pull off.

Well, yeah, I've never heard them called slurs in connection with guitar before, but it's the same concept.

Would calling them slurs be correct? Just so I can say it and it takes less time then hammer-on/pull-offs(yes, I am that lazy just like rest of America.)
#7
yeah hammer offs and pull offs are slurs. Slurs is the brass/woodwind name for it tho
#8
yep. slurs. i remember in orchestra, it's when with one bow stroke, you make other notes. same as hammer on pull of. one pick strike... multiple notes. legato has no picking at all.

Yep they're slurs, although in more metal sort of areas a slur often means a short lick of pulling off/hammer ons that is repeated

Slurs is the proper term for hammer ons and pull-offs. You don't think classical guitarists actually called them hammer ons, do you? I'm also pretty sure that slides are referred to as slurs.

^^ Indeed ^^

Anytime in classical music its called a slur, slights and tapping are also slurs.

Slurs are marks that indicate legato playing. A slur looks like a tie, but is often longer and spans many notes or measures.

Legato playing on the guitar implies the use of 'hammer-ons and pull-offs' so yes, slurs are another word for those. Although I'd call legato the proper word for hammer-ons and pull-offs.

Ah yeah i was slightly confused there, but yeah a slur can sometimes be that

With guitar, you don't call hammer ons or pull offs slurs. However, with any other instrument, the equivalent of that would be a slur.
