This kind of tapping is perfect for the beginner solo guitarist + it sounds cool! Thanks David.
Nice melody David
Good job, man!
Very cool as always David!!
Excelent tapping !!!! it's really a great tool in playing
I did not know that about the water....
Thanks for the hint, and a great lesson too!
First bit sounds kind of like Mr. Crowley, cool I like it David, this might be my first tapping lesson I get into.
This one helped my tapping alot:) and it made my pointing finger on my frethand hurt cause of the stretch from 1-5;) But that´s a good thing right?
Good step for every beginner,well done David!
lol the beginning part is the same as from gabriels tapping lesson except moved over a string
very nice though
Good work, very nice lesson!
Look guitar and health lessons all in one! Thanks David.
Very cool, sounds great!
love that stuff!! great one David
Hey David thx for that lesson, very inspiring! I have a basic question about tapping, as you and apparrently all other instructors with GMC do a "downstroke" pull-off after tapping the note with the finger. My former guitar intructor told me it didn't really matter which way you pull-off if you kept the strings quiet. Personally, I can do tapping much more faster if I do those upstroke pull-offs. I just wondered why no one else does it that way....i can also keep the strings quiet...What do you think ? thanks very much for your answer
that sounds so hard when you hear it and when you first try to play it. but this is my second day trying this song and ive got it done
thanks for the lesson
DUDE!!! that was awesome!! my first tapping lesson and i can play now ( after 2 hours of practicing it)
YES!!!! i feel good now !!!! im gonna kick my friends with this lessons hehe
i done it once and got it down the first time i learned it:D
well that is because i do tapping in everything i do so this wasnt hard,
but it was melodic and it made me nearly comes to tears cos it was so good and so full of soul and energy!
these lessons rock!
these help me so much with the program i set myself:D

Sorry for the late answer...
That's a good question! I never really thought about it. I don't think it matters as long as it's comnforrtable and clean.
Any thoughts guys?
I have my fingers starting like this:
Left Index on fret 5
Left Pinky on fret 8
Right on fret 12
The only problem I seem to be having is my Left pinky on fret 12. Instead of just simply moving it strait up I end up pulling off like I do with my right finger that is on fret 12. Any ideas how to prevent this?
Hi guys I'm new, so please bear with me,
I'm a complete beginner, and in fact tonight was my first night ever touching a guitar, I've spent about 2 and a half hours, and have gotten the rythm, and my speed is improving (slightly, haha) but I need some advice.
My pull off is signifigantly louder than my hammer on w/ my left pinky. I've tried to adjust the pressure I exert during my initial hammer on and pull off, but it still seems really difficult for me to get the same volume out of that last hammer on. Is it something I need to do with my amp or am I maybe out of tune, or am I still just doing the pull off way to hard? Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
Fixed it myself actually, it turned out that it was a combination of my tuning being way off, and my grip, I find I do SIGNIFIGANTLY better with my left thumb pressed against the back of the fretboard for leverage to really send that pinky down.
Awesome beginner's piece for those that want to learn to shred. A real confidence builder for those of us as newb as me who didn't even know what a fret was until we pressed play.
Thanks for a great lesson David
Thanks David. An inspiring track. This lesson precipitated my return to playing the guitar after a break of 20 years! Rock on!
just try to concentrate on what u are doing.
it should sort it itself out after a while.
also why would u have ur pinky on the 12th fret?
omg nice add on the drink water I was praticing your lessons for like 8 hours at a time and drank lots of water and yes it really did help my muscles funny how I automatically did that without knowing it helps cuz I didnt to funny keep up the good suggestions!
very cool! good left hand stretching 2!!
Ah, this is the first lesson that I ever learned here. I had just discovered tapping, and oh, how excited I was. Oh, precious memories. Really, this lesson is great.
Really cool etude... Nice tapping ^^ Awesome !
Thanks a lot Alex!
