Tapping On One String

This lesson introduces the technique of tapping with the right hand. We will first focus on tapping just one string patterns.

After mastering the technique of tapping on one string, it is pretty easy to move to multiple strings.

Tapping in particular is a technique that is used predominantly in rock and metal music. Although relatively simple and easy to perform, it sounds devastatingly fast when perfected.

The key to tapping isn’t particularly speed, but accuracy. When listening to a fast guitar passage you will be amazed by how much faster and exciting a cleanly performed passage sounds than a sloppily performed passage at the same or higher tempo.

If you have never tried tapping before, take your time with these exercises until they feel like second nature to you. After that, try to expand upon them by whatever means necessary.

Here is the complete PDF download of the lesson.
