    Hi all. I've recently got to the end of my tapping book and learnta fair bit of the theory (admitidily I've forogtton a bit :/ ) and have also learnt 2 of the 3 songs at the back.

    whats a good tapping part to attempt to play? I've already had a look at dream thater metroplis thing aswell as the chorus from stu hamms terminal beach.

    Cheers!

    Stu Hamm's Kings Of Sleep album is great for sinking your teeth into tapping.
    Stu has a transcription book out with songs from his first 3 solo albums out (Radio Free Albemuth, KoS and The Urge).

    Yeah, Stu Hamm is perfect on the intermediate level...

    most of his songs are tapping riffs over rock backgrounds so it`s very appealing

    You also should check out what Dave LaRue is playing on the Steve Morse (Band) albums and on the latest Dixie Dregs albums (Full Circle, California Screamin').

    The tapping bass line John Myung does to start off his instructional video is just awesome, IMO! Hell, the whole video is awesome, especially that and Solar Groove...:D

    If you're a fan of JM you might want to pick up the video, I did, and it's awesome!

    PS I can finally play that tapping line! yay!:D
