What you have been doing is practicing your legato sections - and that's a
really good way to get a more interesting sound, combining slides with
hammer-ons, bends and pull-offs to achieve a smooth piece of music.


When I grew up playing the guitar as a teenager, I was really good at hammer-ons and pull-offs. I was not very good at fast continual picking in which nearly every note is plucked, though. That's something I've become more interested in lately, and I've been studying a lot of picking techniques like scalpal picking and circular picking.

I love the lyrical sound of legato playing. But I also love the intensity of hearing every note picked in a fast run. I'm not bad at the former; I just wish I were better at the latter.
