Tap time !!!

Here I've got a tapping sequence in A Aeolian or A Minor.

We're using the scale to move through in sequence. The fretting hand is always playing two notes next to each other whilst the tapped note is always a 3rd above. No matter where you start in a scale you can apply this pattern and maintain it as you move to the next intervals in the scale.

The timing is 16th note triplets. But if you wanted to you can turn this into 16th notes by using the left hand to hammer-on back to the first note that was fretted, thus making the shape an equal number of 4 notes. You can time this however you want. The principle is just about taking a combination of notes and moving it through a scale whilst maintaining the interval structure.

This is perfect for whenever you're stuck trying to fit tapping licks into a solo !
