Finger Tapping - String Skipping Finger Tapping - A Major 3-string Grouping

In this lesson, we are going to utilize the A Major diatonic scale. If you aren't sure what that means, don’t worry, the scale is outlined in the picture below. Notice the dots have different colors. The green dots represent the notes you’ll play with your fret-hand. The orange dots represent the notes you’ll tap with your tapping hand.

In this exercise, you will be ascending and descending on the A Major scale while playing three notes per string. Make sure each note is equal in volume.

Also, watch out for unwanted string noise. Since we’re playing across 6 strings, it’s sometimes easy to accidentally allow open string noise. Do your best to mute adjacent strings with your fret-hand index finger.
