Watch the Right Hand Stacatto 1 online guitar lesson by Brad Carlton from Essential Techniques

Now we will address the right hand in regard to posture, staccato and legato. I think you'll like my analogies with regard to articulation. The right hand is the artist as it initiates the sound (except in the case of slurs) so the more options you have as to tone, attack, dynamics, and dampening (articulation), the more musical you will be in your playing.
