    Anyone have clips/vids/examples of how they apply tapping to their music?

    There is a tapping section at 7:15-9:08 in "Sky's on Fire". It starts out slow, but builds up a little towards the end before I hit the wah pedal. It's mainly just a part to accompany the guitar solo

    Indeed. The Conklin is tuned F#-C now as well.

    Man you're good. Tabs or sheet music, lol.
    Seriously, you should post a YouTube lesson.

    The song at the bottom is built around a simple tapping riff I came up with, I'm pretty happy my band liked it enough to turn it into a song.

    If I decided to spend a lot of time doing to tapping thing, I would try to get the whole adam nitti thing down. His tune Broken, Part 1 is one of the most musical tapping compositions I've ever heard.

    Here is a youtube video of some guy playing it. It's not Adam Nitti but the guy has the tune down.

    Check my sig.. all of my music has tapping in some way or another. Sometimes it's a flavour, sometimes the song is based entirely around it.

    Well, the sheet music is readily available - it's a really popular piano piece. I'm afraid I can't give a youtube lesson on how to play it, though, I haven't played it in more than a year, and I don't tap very often anymore.

    Aw, you're a REALLY good tapper. I want to tap like you and then I'll be satisfied with my playing"(I said that too when I sucked at Double Thumping, I'm good at it now, but I'm still not satisfied with myself :meh:)
    Can you send the sheet music to my email? Just a quick question,though does this piece have to be on a 7 or 6 string?
