  1. alright, the million dollar question boys...

    TAPPING... im trying to get better at it, but.. its just not working, im not progressing at all.

    is there any type of exersize that any of you guys found help full???

    i been trying to learn ' linus & lucy ' , the way STU HAMM plays it.. i can do both parts, i can play the melody with my right hand, and bass with left..but as i try to play them at same time it just all falls apart.
     
  2. I think that you work separetly all the song for the right hand and all the song for the left hand. Instead of this I may suggest you to work with both hand but just try to play very few beats/mesures. I mean divide the songs in parts/figures and try to play with both hand those little parts than combine those parts with each other, one after one.
    It worked for me for some songs, I wish it'll work for you too...
    Cheers!
