  • Hi there! Welcome to '8-Finger Tapping Basics - Exercise no.2'! In this lesson you will learn two variations of one exercise. You will learn an exercise for practicing hammer-ons and pull-offs with your tapping hand. This is quite simple, but the only challenge is to use fingers 1, 2, 3 and 4 for tapping. You will only need enough patience to make all your tapping fingers to do their job without too much effort. This could take time. And the point is to concentrate on those fingers on which you have least control, mainly 4 and 3. With time, your tapping will become less sloppy and more precise. Also, your tapping hand fingers will be able to 'find' the right string a lot easier.

    An important tip: if you should get frustrated while practicing, thinking that you are not doing it right, or not making progress at all, just take a break to let your brain 'digest' the new patterns, and after 10-30 minutes you will see that you've made progress. And any time you feel that you are stuck, just pause for a while.

    Good luck! :)
