I'm sorry if this has been brought up before, but I didn't find anything while looking up past topics.
I couldn't understand why my tapping sounded so messy, until I finally realized that it wasn't the string that I was tapping on made all the noise. What is the technique to mute the rest of the strings while tapping? But at the same time, on the videos, it doesn't look like Kris is muting the other strings. How does it sound so clean without muting? I mean, I'm not messy when tapping and hitting other strings as well, but simply hitting the fretboard is vibrating the other strings on my guitar... huh.gif

Good question. Now I'm no tapping master, but I can tap cleanly. So if you watch Kris' right hand you'll see that when he's tapping his right palm is resting on all the strings abvoe the string he's tapping, and all the strings below the string he's tapping on is covered(and muted) by his left hand. This has always worked for me.
