is tapping easier on a bigger guage string. Right now i am us .10 guage, very light and thin strings . i cant tap on the high e string, it just doesnt ring out. I can tap perfectly fine on any other string except the high e.

So is tapping easier on a heavier guage string?

It's easier with thinner strings because you need less strenght to push them down.

My vote for thinner strings too! Easier to execute on them.
