  • Tapping is the topic of today's lesson. Before you start, make sure you guitar is in tune and watch the opening video to understand what is going on. As you can see, there is absolutely no pick involved here. All the notes are brought to life by hammering on, pulling off and tapping the frets.

    Once you have memorized the different shapes we'll use, you need to be very careful not to have any other notes ring than the one you are playing. That is done by muting the strings next to the one you are working with. You can do so by slightly touching the adjacent string with your right hand palm and/or your left hand's finger.

    Pay close attention to the slowed down videos and practice slowly but surely. You might need to be patient as the calluses of your right hand might need to develop first.

    Work hard and have fun!
