  3. is she talking about tapping as a bass technique or tap dancing turock? (considering that this is a bass forum i'd guess it's the first option)
     
  4. BTW I think you can get some info about tapping at harmony-central.com

    Very funny

    Assuming that you dont want to be Ginger Rogers...

    Start by using hammer ons with the fretting hand (wait) until its clean sounding. Now mimic that action using the plucking hand.

    Now work out how to make music with the technique.

    I'm overwhelmed by your guessing skills, I bet you could win big money on a game show.
