    From the online manual:

    For the patterns:

    • Picking patterns: When playing picking patterns, the playback engine analyzes the incoming or generated chord and allocates the individual notes to different strings of the guitar. The more notes you press on the keyboard, the more sophisticated the resulting picking pattern will sound. Therefore, playing up to six notes at a time can lead to interesting variations. Depending on the selected pattern, several notes of a voicing will be performed as hammer-ons and pull-offs.

    For the Melody instrument (note to note):

    • When playing adjacent open notes, hammer-on and pull-off samples are added automatically if the velocity of the following note is significantly softer than the one previously played. This works only for overlapping (legato) notes up to an interval of a minor third.

    Since there is no true legato in the Session Guitar series, one option is to create a very low velocity 1/32nd or 1/64th note that just slightly proceeds & overlaps under the target note.
