    When i tap one string then i'm supposed to do HP/PO..

    but when i do melodic lines on different strings, i've been experimenting doing Hp/Po but it seems to slow me down and when i do it with my left hand im pretty gone...

    it looks like stu hamms tapping often is no Hp/Po but when i play like that i just get a staccato kind of tone..

    also, could someone give me excercises for bot multi-string and single string tapping, also when i use all my fingers..

    i haave noticed that some guitar players talks about 8finger tapping, but when do you use 8finger tapping on one string?
