what does it mean whem a piece of music has a slur from one note to another?
Have not heard of it.. Moind giving us the source of where you heard it??
Hi ! i know it - slurs means slides from one note to another, i use to call it with the same name, earlier before seeing the word slide. So its nothing different but slide.
Oh ok.. Then read my tutorials on SLiding and bending..
Slurs are basically bending not sliding...r u sure slurs are also used for sliding too???
You can still follow the same tutorial.. It deals with both.. BY the way seems like i'm marketing my tutorials a lot..
hey jayanth...ur tutorials are really good dude...
Slurs include all of the following -
You will note they are all fretting hand techniques. From a purist point of view slurs only include hammers-ons and pull-offs. In fact many don't include bends and slides under slurs. Guitarists use slurs to add rhythmic, melodic and harmonic interest to basic guitar playing.
Also, you should not substitute the word 'slides' for 'slurs'. It would lead to confusion if you play in a band of experienced guitarists.
Thats true abotu the not substituting part..
You are welcom Jack..
Thanks Guys and ill be sure to read your forum Jayanth...
You are welcome.. You can ask me if you have any problems with my tutorials.
Separate names with a comma.
