Hi everybody. Some friends at the Ernie Ball forums have told me about their interest on getting started on the two-handed tapping technique for bass, so last night I recorded some short videos trying to explain the basics of the technique just as a "vacation farewell". Of course, I want to share them with the TalkBass community as well. My intention was to upload the files to PutFile, but size limit was not enough for me, so I decided to use YouTube for this. PLEASE EXCUSE MY ENGLISH PRONUNCIATION. Currently I have nobody who can help me practicing it. Part 1 Part 2 Part 3 Part 4 Part 5 Part 6 Part 5 is about practicing independence and as I said there, there are much simpler exercises for this, but I wanted to share that one because it's very cool (at least for me). Here's the transcription for that exercise: There's an important remark about this exercise that I forgot to mention: In part 2, I said that the right thumb always must be on the top side of the neck. When playing double stops on adjacent strings, the situation is a bit different. Anchoring the thumb only works for intervals greater than a tritone (most likely tritone, perfect fifth and minor sixth), but the smaller ones (most likely perfect fourth, major third and minor third) become very awkard to play without letting your thumb float (actually, minor thirds must be played with the thumb and the middle finger). I hope you'll find this information useful. I'm by no means an expert on the technique but I like it and have been struggling with that for years. My knowledge on this is very limited but I think it's very useful for the tapping newbie who really wants to get into this stuff. Have fun!
