FOUR NOTES PER STRING TAPPING!!! This is NOT the standard VanHalen tapping bit. We are going to be using an OPEN STRING here and traversing all the way down and back up the strings. So your MUTING is going to be very very important. If you are not used to striking and pulling off with the first finger, now is your chance!

Once you get that, the rest is easy! Just hammer on with the left hand for the rest of the notes. It's the same patter on every string so you can focus on your technique and not hand position.

Your muting will be needed with both hands. You will need to mute with the right hand using the palm and the left hand using the fingers. Try to mute any strings that are not being played This is a great workout for your muting and will help you a bunch in other licks that require string traverse with clean mute.

*Make sure to watch the vid, don't skip it and just look at the tab, the tab is just where to put your fingers, not the lesson.

*NOTE: Keep your mute so that you don't get string noise. Use both hands to mute!

This is a stand alone drill/lick. It's meant to be played by itself as it's not really a scale. It's for practicing your tapping and muting using an open string and traverse.

Please let me know if you have any questions about this lick, send me a PM if you like or post here. I'm happy to help!
