    anyone else here do this? i figured this out about 5 years or so ago. but it's hard to incoporate into a song other than it just being a fill. i'll explain what i'm doing.
    i slap an open E but instead of slapping behind the 24 fret i come down to about the 20th fret to do that slap. and then i hammer on 15 fret G on the E string. then hammer the octave 17th fret D string then tap the 20th fret on g string then hammer the 17th fret on D again. and just repeat that really fast and it sounds pretty sweet, but you do it more than 7 or 8 times and it just sounds like noise. and after playing it 8 times i'll tap the g string behind 24 fret to get the G to ring out then hit some raked harmonics to bring it back into the song. i suppose this would be really cool in the middle of a solo tap piece but i'm pretty much crap at any sort of complicated tapping. so i what i'm asking is for some creative input into expanding on this technique oh and the timing on it is 1st 3 notes are a triplet. last 2 are 1/8
    and all very percussive
