Very well focused and smooth sounding lesson Emir.
To me tapping is the #1 most easy shred technique - so if you don't yet master any technique which allows you to build fast and fluid runs, why not have a go at tapping?
Absolutely agree Kristofer. Tapping is not that difficult when played with one finger like in this lesson and still can sound very effective.
Excellent lesson Emir!
Awesome tapping lesson Emir. Very cool patterns. Useful and melodic at the same time. Well done man
Really nice lesson Emir! I am overall a slow player, and tapping is the tool that helps me throwing in some faster parts in my solos.
Tapping is one of the things that I have been planning on practicing and incorporating into my playing. Looks like this will be a good one to start with
Woow! Great job Emir! you know the technique!!!
This is a great lesson on tapping.
Very 'simple' indeed and very effective lesson concept thanks to the colored fretboard and tapping notes.
Cool lesson, Emir. Thanks for the advice on sound and the string dampener. Any time I've tried to tap more than just one position of a pattern, I start getting noise all over the place. Thanks, man.
Good work Emir......I love tapping....... Just in case ya didn't know, LOL!!!
Great lesson Emir, just what I need!!
Ahh.. I learned that tapping lick from Paul Gilbert Lesson. Very Very Very Helpful!! Ive experimented with it a lot, and has helped plenty! Great lesson...
Very cool Emir, love it! Thanks again!!
Great lesson Emir!
Thanks guys, I am happy if you can pick something useful from this one.
Nice lesson I'll look into this tomorrow
very cool lesson man! Agree 100% with Kris! all shred aspirant should give a try to this lesson!
tapping is always effective!
hi emir, yeah very cool tapping i really like where it starts at 00:19 as always quality lesson emir!
Emir, the great! And a great lesson for proof - super cool sound for tapping practice and getting a better feel for moving along the fretboard. No boredom here. I never practiced tapping much beyond what I made up on the fly or was trying to learn from others like you. The hardest one I ever tried is the tapping at end of your "Rock Ballad" solo, where you lead with your left index finger from the open string, and change strings and positions so frequently. I got the solo down but am really weak there - even with the sound dampener, but if I let it get too intense it is still sloppy and noisy. Is it me or my sound settings? I'm good at muting strings other than with that particular style of tapping. I know it's hard to tell without hearing it first... Still, any advise you might have would be appreciated - surely you recall your own beginnings. Thanks again for all the great lessons for progressions. Ha! All the best...
Great lesson Emir, everybody should be able to do some tapping, it is such a great technique.
Awesomeness at it's best, bro! You did it again
Very interesting lesson, Emir! Love the neoclassical feel
Great stuff man! I like those taps a lot!
Nice tapping man! thanks!
Correction on my former question - I should had probably asked in another forum (my bad), but the part I'm having trouble with in your "Rock Ballad Solo" is in part 10 (not the very end) of the lesson - starting first where you begin those taps with your left index finger, second, and then middle finger including string changes, etc...
Cool... so smooth
intemperateControl - I'll have a look at part 10 and reply on PM or somewhere on my board
Thanks, Emir. Sorry about not posting my question in the proper forum. My first intent last night was just simply to say "Great Lesson, Man." I just got carried away. Anyway, your advise and lessons are always greatly appreciated. Please let me know where to read your response...
Great tapping lesson Emir
Sounds great, good job Emir!
Beautiful stuff with such simple patterns. Thanks!
Hej Emire. What is the last shape you play?( the repetitive one) Its great also to just pick trough it.
Hi and welcome to my first tapping lesson.
This lesson demonstrates how you can compose interesting lines using just one simple tapping pattern. The chord progression is Am, G, Dm and E. I am just targeting 3 notes that are in the right scale and move through the scale up and down. This technique got very popular when Van Halen introduced it on his famous song "Eruption". This pattern is slightly different. You have both hammer on and pull off with the left hand. About the right hand make sure that you pull of strong when you tap the note. Do not just move your finger away from the fretboard. You really need to pull it off almost like with the pick in order to get the right tapping effect.
I left all the scales and patterns used and you can try to come up with something in different positions or different strings.
Sound advice: You need some nice and warm drive and noise gate to avoid unarticulated notes. You can also use some improvised string dampener on the 1st fret, even a sock can help :) Mute other strings with both hands as much as possible.
I hope you will like this one. Happy Tapping!!!
