Hi there!

Now, I'm a big fan of Tapping and just discovered your "Touch Technique"-Lessons. I really liked these lessons and wondered how it would sound with a heavy backing and a suitable composition over that backing track, but since I'm not really good at this technique I can't figure it out for myself. Just wondered if you could try it out and report how it sounds. tongue.gif

And if this is a really stupid idea (what may be the case), just delete it. wink.gif

But anyways, love your work!

yeah, I recorded some lessons about tapping using distortion. You can see them on my profile: http://www.guitarmasterclass.net/instructor/Juan-M-Valero
My favourite lessons are "Shred Tapping Solo" and "Juan M. Valero Tapping"

Now I'm working in a 8 fingers tapping lessons (I just recorded lesson 1 and 2) and my idea is to do some exercises to improve this technique biggrin.gif

This is sort of off topic unsure.gif ... But, do you know what tuning Stanley Jordan has his guitar in? I heard it was different. For those of you who haven't heard him. Check him out... He's amazing!!!

well, actually I never used the word "touch" before beeing in GMC. I said always Polyphonic tapping, because with this technique you play 2 or more notes notes with BOTH hands TOGETHER. But that technique is difficult to play with distortion because IMHO it sounds dirty, so when I talk about 8 fingers tapping I only play 1 note at the same moment.

So, I don't know exactly what do you want tongue.gif sorry !!!

So, I made another mistake. blink.gif

Well, actually I was just looking for another 8 Finger Tapping Lesson, but maybe sometimes with two oder three notes tapped at the same time, for example octaves (is that possible? unsure.gif ). So a mix of Polyphonic Tapping/Touch Technique and 8 Finger Tapping.

mmm well I know that some players do this technique, for instance Fernando Miyata:

minute 2:07 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DyCXAvlBehg


Anyway, I usually don't use this technique because with my presets it sound too dirty.

I found a tab on his website... It said (Low to High) E A D G C F ... Maybe, so when he pulls off the string is less likely to stretch over the fretboard and make the *Squeaky* sound? Can't wait for your new lesson! I looove Polyphonic Tapping!!! biggrin.gif
