Hey Mike, I posted this thread in another section but didn't get a reply, I was thinking maybe you could shed some light on the situation. I've decided it's time that I sit and get my tapping (both one hand and two handed) down to a sastifactory level. Problem is though, my tapping on the G and D strings is making my A string ring out a bit. (when single hand tapping) As you can imagine, it's rather difficult to mute that string in the middle of a phrase. Two handed tap is really a nightmare for strings that still ring out, even after I let off on them. How should I handle this? Should I do something with the setting of my action? Would a higher end bass have the same problem. Should I search e-bay and used music sites for a Kleen Axe? Or is my problem not with the bass, but my techinque. Am I coming down on the fretboard to hard? I'm I leaving off the strings to abruptly with my two handed tap? Your help is very much appreciated.
