Pat Cloud's "Key to Five-String Banjo" is a book of scale exercises. Before the first exercise, Mr. Cloud writes (emphasis mine):
Always start slowly and increase speed on each exercise only when you are absolutely sure you are using the correct fingers. There should be "daylight" between each note.
What does it mean for there to be "daylight between each note?" Does it just mean that I should avoid playing legato, or should I be playing staccato?
