Let's continue our tapping work and add in a big stretch. Being able to reach notes with the pinky is crucial. It opens up an entire library of licks. In this one we are going to do some Eddie VanHalen style tapping but modify it by doing a chromatic ascent with the right hand and doing a big stretch on the left. Try to leave the first finger planted as you would during EVH tapping. The trick is to reach the notes with the pinky. If you find this impossible, just reach the furthest fret you can. I'm just showing the extreme version of this idea. If you can only reach 3 frets out that is totally fine. Keep doing your hand stretches. It took me a while to stretch enough to get a big reach.

Remember, you don't have to play it as written. An stretch, 3 frets, 4 frets is ok. Eventually, your reach will increase. It just takes some time.

Nicely done! I like how you switch to other strings as well! This lick works on every single string and other places on the neck. Great to see you experimenting with the lick! you have a great stretch with your pinky as well!!!! You got this licked. I"ll be you could play it even further down the neck with the stretch you have. Add it to a solo! You just..
