In the image below, concerning the third slur, I am trying to figure out if I should be playing both hands legato?
Two reasons for that:
- The melody is traveling between the two staves.
- The first few notes in the upper stave under the third slur have rests between them, so playing them legato would be impossible. If applying only to the upper stave, it would make more sense to start the slur after all those rests.
