    What are relatively easy songs/riffs/excercises to build a good tapping technique? I know how to, but I need songs to build on TY.

    rapscallion

  3. ^You took the words right out of my mouth. Rapscallion is a little tough sometimes though, just odd timing with those little triplets in the chorus. All of those are great songs for simple tapping though.

    http://www.easybyte.org/ has quite a lot of sheet music for piano, that can easily be used for practicing tapping. You should a few pieces there that you help you get started.

    Soooo I only play the bass clef part? I know how to play it on the piano, but on bass? I've learned to play sheet on bass.
     
  7. play both parts...you could play it just like you play piano...i'd play the bass clef with your left hand, and the melody with your right...
