Legato is an Italian word that means "tied together". It is used in music to describe notes that sound smoothly connected together. Legato is accomplished by moving from one note to the next with no intervening silence, or as little as possible; and with as little rearticulation as possible.

This tutorial covers legato playing techniques in detail.

Hope this helps! Please ask more if necessary & best of success with legato playing. :)

Christopher,
Thank You very much, I am definitely going to view your tutorial and learn it. I am wanting to learn this style after I heard how beautiful it sounded in a Neil Diamond song. I have already taken some of your lessons in the core lessons and learned a lot. Thanks again.
