Hey Kris,

I've watched several of your tapping 101 lessons and started practicing tapping. However, I am not very successful at it. I have a Parker NiteFly Mojo guitar (similar to one you have but with SD pickups instead of dimarzio) with light gauge strings. I'm using a line6 amp with high gain, etc. I am trying to practice the simple 19-15-12 Em arpeggio tapping lick you showed in lesson 1 on tapping, but when tapping with the pick hand finger on the 19th I'm getting very low sound that dies off quickly, unless I really hit the string so hard that it hurts. Am I doing something wrong? Or does the technique indeed involve hammering the finger into the string with such force that it's painful? In the video it doesn't look like you're using much force at all with you pick hand. Let me know.
