    Dear tutors

    I completed “An introduction to reading standards notation” but could not find the answer.
    Thus, your kind help would be very appreciated.

    From the music sheet, I can frequently see slur notation 0-2 and 2-0.
    However, I am not sure how to play it.
    0-2: Does it mean hammer-on? Start playing on open-string and hit 2nd note?
    Since 0 is open-string, I am not sure if it is possible to play as ‘slides”
    2-0: Should I play starting with touching 2nd note and take off my finger?
    Again, since 0 is open-string, I am sure if it is possible to play as “slides”

    Thank you very much for your advice in advance.
    Kind Regards,
    Seoul Kim

    Each tab displays a letter symbol for the technique that’s to be used:

    H = Hammer-On
    P = Pull-Off
    Sl. = Slide

    Yes, H/O. Check out this lesson for an overview on how to do this technique.

    You cannot slide open to 2. This would be a hammer-on.

    2-0: Should I play starting with touching 2nd note and take off my finger?
    Again, since 0 is open-string, I am sure if it is possible to play as “slides”

    Correct, the above link covers pull-offs too 🙂
