Lesson N 3. Guitar tapping.

The essence of this exercise is that you have to play notes with your finger of your right hand (typically using the index or ring finger).

I use two basic methods to do that:

1. Finger "falls" from the string (similar to pull off).

2. Finger "falls" on the string "vertically" and also removed from it in the same way.
Thus, you can quickly jump to the next string and avoid "mud" when playing with overdrive effect.

Let's start:

Sample 1 (a fragment of a solo form the song "In the Wind's Eye" by Metka):

(midi)
(TAB)


Another similar option:

Sample 2 (a fragment of a solo form the instrumental "Night" by Metka):
(video)
(midi)
(TAB)

Sample 3.

Sample 4.

In the end I'd like to talk a bit about two-handed tapping. It is also called "piano technique" as both hands play different parties. Consider this example in country music in A-major. At 5 and 6 string we play with our left hand - with fingers 1 and 3, respectively, while on all the other strings - with our right hand).
