  • Hi GMC-ers!
    One of the most influential guitarists in my style nowadays are Paul Gilbert and Jason Becker. Their style is so unique that when you hear them, you instantly know who's playing the guitar. These musicians masterd a lots of high-end techniques, one of them is tapping.

    In this lesson I've decided to make a little tribute to these two guitar icons with this tapping lesson. The technique is a bit advanced, and Jason Becker uses this tapping pattern in his song "Altitudes" from his "Perpetual Burn" CD.

    The most important part is the hammer-on and pull-off section, this is the hardest part to
    master. If you are a beginner-intermediate guitarist, you may want to reduce the hammer-pull section to just the following: the tapped note, and the two other notes in the section, and play each section 8 times.

    In this lesson we will use:

    -Pull offs

    Another thing is that I tuned to Eb here, so the tuning is:Eb, Ab, Db, Gb, Bb, Eb.

    Have fun practicing!
