Hello Kris I was working on tapping a while ago and I was wondering if u can use your pick when u tap because I see a lot of people tapping with their finger and pick but is it cheating either way?
I guess it's easier to use ur finger if u combine tapping w/ other licks but if u use just tapping it seems easier to use the pick. But using other licks it's easier ur finger. So my question is! Is it cheating to use ur pick when JUST tapping

there are no rules .. as long it sounds good i guess tongue.gif. When you use your pick you also get a bit different sound.

Not cheating - for me it wouldn't be as practical, though.

Joe Satriani uses his pick to tap sometimes. It produces a different sound. If you like the sound of it then use that. Personally I prefer the sound of tapping with my fingers.
