    yep, my lame attempts at tapping going down there towards the end - gah, i've really gotta get over using the whole 1-5-1 thing. it's driving me nuts!

    :) ta mate. that's my Spector in action, btw - too bad it doesn't sound as good as it (sometimes) does through my terrible home setup :(

    sorry for my ignorance :confused:

    thanks dude!

    i'm just trying to sound really musical by talking in intervals - in one section of my tapping bit, i run across a high E on the E string (which is the 1 of the chord, which isn't really defined enough by what i'm playing anyway), to a high B on the A string (the 5 of the chord), and finally i land on a high E on the D string (the octave of the E i played initially, therefore in actuality being the '1' again).
    *i'm pretty much playing in E minor here, and the interval numbers refer to the notes in the E minor scale - E is the '1' (or root note) because it's the first note in the scale, B is the '5' (if you count alphabetically up from E, you'll find that B is the fifth letter you come to, and this is how numbers become relevant to note positions within a scale), and the last E is the octave, the '8' (eighth note in the scale) or '1' (because it's effectively the same note). god i hope this crap makes sense.

    it's kind of an easy pattern to play when tapping, and it's basically a power chord (if you played it all together). i'm currently trying very hard to come up with some more melodic ideas to use with this technique - it's not going very well! :D
  19. Got it now, very nice man.
