Tapping Lesson Plan
Posted by Nick325
Before i came to GMC i only knew alternate picking and legato techniques, but when i came here and saw all these new techniques i never heard of i before and decided to watch videos of them. When i saw the tapping lessons i knew i had to learn this technique because it sounds cool and looks cool. So i found the most basic tapping lesson on the site to start with which is the first lesson i listed. These lessons give you the basic understanding of the technique, how to play it, and examples to get you started. After you can get the first lesson down you can move on to the next lesson and so on.
Now that you can play tapping at a beginner level (well if not dont go on until you can) you are going to want to get your chops goods. So now you need to practice excercises. Above i listed the lessons i learned to get my tapping very good. When working up the speed you should practice with the metronome!
These lessons are for practicing songs (you could say) with tapping in them. It is good to intergrate it into your playing instead of just playing only tapping. If you mix different techniques you can get an interesting solo.
Extra: After you learn these you can try a little different version of tapping called touch technique, its very a like but you play a backing with your left hand and tap a melody with your right hand. Here are some lessons related to it.
Note: I did not include every tapping lesson on the site. If you want to learn more you can do so. Its about how good you want to be at the technique
