How do we do the tapping from 5th string stretch to 1st string so quickly ? I can't seem to get it even at super slow speed. Always hitting the wrong place. biggrin.gif

Mental focus is the key. Whenever I have trouble with having to hit a note that is a long distance away I mentally focus on the exact fret I need to be at and it always increases my chances of hitting it. If you're looking at your hand instead then it will be much more difficult and more likely to hit the wrong place. I know it's tough because you've got to memorise all those tapping shapes but if you can switch your focus and look directly at the fret that you need to get to next then you will start hitting it smile.gif

I started this one last night. I have everything down except the tapping parts which will take a considerable amount of practice. I'm not used to that hammer-on from nowhere with tapping type licks. I hope to get a take for this but it may come a bit late.

How can we focus one eye to right hand and another eye to left hand? Why does both eyes have to look at same place? LOL!!

Maybe one day humans will evolve to be able to do this if we keep trying to do it enough !! tongue.gif

LOL!

Anyways, since the deadline is today, I wanted to throw in what I had. I have been focusing mainly on tapping and its long way to go. Getting the hang of it at the slowest backing.



Thanks,
Chandra

Great work man ! Those taps require a lot of concentration don't they ? It all sounded really clean though - well done.

What would you say is the most difficult part ? The taps ? smile.gif

1Donut - congratulations biggrin.gif

Thanks Ben.

Yes, tapping were the most difficult. I haven't done much tapping, if I did, just one string / note tapping. Even within the tapping part, all the parts were quite easy to grab because they were chord shapes and since left hand was mostly static, I could concentrate on right hand. The most difficult part however (the one I have been posting) was the change from 5th string to 1st string. The F arpeggio. It has a long stretch and then immediately both your hands have to slide up and strike on the 1st string. I practiced this all over the week. Since you can't concentrate on one side only (you will miss the next part if you do), hands has to remember how much to move and where to strike. This is by far the most challenging part for me. After that, switching between one section to another without delay was challenging too. When you move your hands, you are bound to spend some time there but you have no time at all. So fast switching, hitting exact note! smile.gif

Will still need months of practice before I can master this lesson.

The other challenging aspect was the tabs were all wrong.. had to use eyes and ears to figure out many parts.. biggrin.gif biggrin.gif

This is more of a progress report as it needs further practice before submitting in REC. I would have preferred to record this @ 110 bpm but I don't have a program that slows down backings. So, here it is at full speed anyway. smile.gif Making the transitions at this speed and avoiding string noise is rough. Maybe thats why a lot of players do this stuff with string dampners? Still need to get the hammer-ons stronger and whatever else you notice too. Thanks!

Cool, thanks! Going to keep at this one. I'm kind of addicted to playing these tapping arpeggio sweeps now. smile.gif
