The tip of the week is to practice your fretting hand technique without picking. It will help build your muscle memory!
To play legato means to "play a series of notes so they are smoothly connected with no silence (or as little as possible) in between them". One note sounds and keeps sounding until the next note starts. This is often indicated in musical notation by a curving arc over or under the series of notes meant to be smoothly connected. It is also called a slur mark or a phrase mark.
If you like this lesson, then GT has a lot more that cover ideas on how to play using legato articulation!
