Here's an easy one. I just started learning the Beatles "Let It Be" and I'm still learning how to read music. When looking at the notes in the verse the first two times the word be is sung the sheet music says to play D then a tied C. How would you play this, as a hammer on or as a slide? Thanks.

Hmm, that's going down. Sounds like a job for a pulloff.

That makes a lot more sense Ricochet. I'll give it a try.

You might also try it as a glissando for a smoother sound. That is a neat trick when trying to do justice to a well known vocal line.

If you want to be good, practice. If you want to be great, you must constantly change the way you think.
