what are some good string for the tapping technique?
I would say... piccolo but thats just me
Light gauge is always good as lighter strings tend to feel looser and easier to hammer. I'd say stainless steels are a good choice due to their high-end.
Zon Ultrasonic Lights are the best that I've played for tap.
I've learned how to tap really fast on ultra heavy strings...lol
I like to tap on my TI jazz flats. Maybe that's a little weird, though. Lower tension is definitely the way to go for tapping, I think, though it's certainly not out of the question with heavy strings either. It takes practice either way.
I prefer steels, taperwounds especially. Medium or Medium-light gauges.
lights are good, I like elixirs
I just switched to T.I. Jazz Flats; Though I'm a beginning tapper, I noticed right away that my most difficult stuff was instantly easier.
Ernie Ball extra Slinky pulling off the lighter strings is perfect for tapping
