Ill try and explain as best i can. I looked up a few solos that i wanted to learn, and some have like, scales moving across the fretboard with hammers ons and stuff. This is probably a retarded question but i was wondering whether this was a particular technique or just scales?

legato

Not really, it's just hammer ons and pull offs.

Legato is a style as opposed to a specific technique and just means "playing smoothly" , as such you can accomplish it using any compination of hammer ons, pulloffs, slides, bends and other unpicked notes.

I can't see the timing, but it looks kind of Slashy so I'm guessing it's a triplet run. If you were desperate to classify it you could call it a triplet run in Em pentatonic using hammer ons and pull offs.
Actually called Mark!

It's a very (VERY!) fine line, what legato means on the guitar. I say that if you use hammers, pulls, slides, and taps, your lick is legato. If you pick it, even if it sounds smooth, it is not legato.


On the guitar, of course.
