    It's Victor's version of Norwegian Wood, but I've simplified it a little bit and made some slight changes. It's only one little part of it and I make a little booboo, but it's my first video and I just felt like sharing it with you guys. Angelfire doesn't allow direct linking, so the link has to be copied and pasted with the "?" removed from http.

    Cool, it's still DLing, but I can watch the first 10 seconds of it right now, it's taking a long time. Nice tapping! I can't tap for my life.
     
  3. Sweet tapping man. Out of curiosity, how long have you been playing, your're like 2 months younger than me and I want to see how behind the curve I am. Beautiful Lakland, btw.

    Well, it's been about 4 years now. I sort of picked up bass to be in the high school jazz band.
     
  6. *sulks off to practice tapping*.

    Excellent work man
     
  7. Quick question - In one or two spots I hear you make sounds like a drummer. How do you do that?

    Well tapping is naturally a more percussive sound, especially if you boost the treble a little bit, which I like to do. I don't know exactly where in the song you are referring to but there are some dead notes where I hit the strings but keep them muted so no note rings out but the strings still make sound.
