  • Hi there, Lian´s here once again!
    I´ve composed this tapping etude to add some ideas to our vocabulary. It´s not too complex, so I hope you find interesting this etude. Here we´ll play tapping technique along the whole lesson, with a funny variation at the end. Most important thing here´s pay attention on timing and accents. I heard some freaky tapping like this in some of Dragonforce solos, so lovers of this band be alert ;)

    Well I hope you enjoy this lesson as I enjoyed doing it.

    Take this lesson step by step and have fun!

    Chords: included in every video.
    Used scales: A minor. A harmonic minor.

    As some of you know, I use a POD xt to rec all my lessons. In my board you´ll find my presets ;) On the other hand, here´re the settings for people who wants.

    Amp model: based on Soldano Slo-100
    Drive 9
    Bass 4.9
    Middle 5
    Treble 6.8
    Presence 7

    Small room Reverb:

    Decay 42 %

    Remember: Same settings in other gear will produce a different sound, but, as we´ve talked at the forum, this could be cool for some members, so enjoy!

    If you have any problems let me know. Take care.
    see you all around.
