Explaining about the unique guitar tech Greg wrote on the column, "Punchy Legato is a term I use to describe a hybrid texture containing both legato and staccato characteristics simultaneously." Moreover, the guitar master also added, "Aside from this texture being relatively common in the world of high-speed overdriven guitar playing, it also happens to be the texture I personally prefer most when it comes to playing fast.

Beside giving the explanation, Greg also demonstrate the technique to make guitar heads understand what he meant by punchy legato and the usage of it. Not only giving the tabs, the guitar virtuoso also made a video that showed the fingering positions of the guitar tabs.
