The aim here is to create a smooth and connected sound without a lot of effort.
Practicing with a distorted sound will give you more sustain to work with, but you also have the added difficulty of muting the non-played strings. I suggest practicing both ways (clean tone and distorted) and we will work on muting techniques in a future lesson.
Combine this exercise with the one from the last lesson where we worked on Hammer-Ons and you will be well on your way to developing a solid legato technique.
Just make sure to practice slowly while trying to get your finger tips to land on the exact same spot in the fret every time. It is also a good idea to try and land on the same spot on your fingertip each time, but don't strees out about it too much right now. The best thing to do is just practice to the best of your ability with your full attention and you will be fine.
