    Hey guys,

    I made this video quite a while ago but haven't seen much here in the ways of tapping lately so I thought some of you may enjoy this. Also let me know if there are any follow up videos you think I should make in relation to this

    Cool video except it would have been better to slow it way down and call out notes instead of fret markers. It was extremely hard to follow and hoped it would have been geared to beginning tappers . Just my opinion'

    I actually think the first video is more melodic.
    The guy in the one you mentioned, is a great player for that style of music, no doubt. But the tapping doesn't sound more melodic to me. Nice bass tho :p

    I absolutely love that band. The thing is, the tapping hes doing is more on a single string at a time and just follows the scale hes in. The tapping im doing follows any major/ minor chords which i think many people will find usefull. I will post a video of my usong this tapping in a song context so you can get a better idea of its use in a less speedy situation

    the audio is a tiny bit off on this video but this song uses the exact shapes from the first video as well as some expanded chords for the 7 string bass :)
