not that kind of tapping

Discussion in 'Technique [BG]' started by nate 0 jt, Aug 27, 2001.


  1. this is the tapping that john entwistle uses, you dont acually fret the note but just hammer it with your finger. Does anyone have any tips or special techniques in this area? Thanks nate

    Thats where the good tapping is...

    1) Low Action is a must for this technique.
    As the tapped notes will sound very similar to plucked notes.

    2)Strong Fingers. Will develop in time...

    3) Get "The Art of Tapping" video by Dewayne Pate. I believe it is the best video available on tapping technique.
