this or Legato


Uhhh... negative?
legato is similar to long, when you're talking about notes and the way they connect.
if that makes sense.
You would've been closer if you had said staccato, but that still wouldn't be right.

Hammer ons/pull offs are pretty much anti staccato

This is from the Harvard Dictionary of Music:
  • Legato [Italian]. To be played without any perceptible interruption between the notes.
  • Staccato. A manner of performance calling for a reduction of a note's duration with a rest substituted for half or more of its value. A quarter note, for example, would be reduced to perhaps a sixteenth note, followed by three sixteenth rests.
  • Tremelo [Italian]. ...(b) the rapid alternation between two notes of a chord, usually a third apart.
  • Trill [Italian trillo]. A musical ornament consisting of the rapid alternation of a given note with the diatonic second above it.


You be the judge, but in my opinion hammer-ons/pull-offs are tremelos.
All things are difficult before they are easy.

Hammer ones and pull offs are almost never between chord tones, and a tremelo is generally a sustained alternation between two notes.

I beg your pardon? You "almost never" perform hammers/pulls between chord tones? This is news to me. Am I the only one who didn't know this?
...and a tremelo is generally a sustained alternation between two notes.
Is this not precisely what the HDM says?

Whatever.
