I was inspired by MrWrong's thread. Wasn't sure exactly what to title this thread. I've never been even remotely interested in tapping, but a couple of clips in that other thread raised some interest. I've got a lot of thoughts and questions, and I'd like to hear what ya'll think. 1st - tapping to me always seemed like nothing more than a way to show off. Anyone else feel this way? I think I can get over that, as it also seems to be a great way to do some really beautiful solo stuff. 2nd - I always thought in order to tap, you had to have the volume really cranked on the bass, and it had to be EQed radically different from my ordinary settings, which would make it really difficult to integrate into my style. I really dig in when I play, and if I were to play fingerstyle and tap in the same song it would seem like it wouldn't work. Am I making any sense? Any thoughts? 3rd - where does one start? I really know next to nothing about tapping. You hit a note on the fretboard and you get a sound. That's as far as I go. What's this tapping stuff all about. Please answer my questions, talk about anything you'd like regardig it, post clips, lessons, links.... whatever. Thanks.
