Finger Tapping - Using Both Hands

Sean Conklin 456 lessons

Similar Lessons

Most of the time, you will be using both hands while finger tapping. When playing tapping passages, you'll usually either be hammering on from your fret-hand to your tapping-hand, or pulling off from your tapping-hand to your fret-hand.

In this exercise, we will be ascending and descending on the strings. While ascending, your fret-hand index finger will hammer on the 9th frets, then your tapping-hand index finger will hammer on the 12th frets. You will repeat this on all 6 strings. While descending, your tapping-hand index finger will hammer on the 12th frets, then pull off to your fret-hand index finger on the 9th frets.

Take it very slowly while you get use to the motions. Also, make sure every note is equal in volume.
