As with everything that you learn, it is important to break whatever it is that you are learning into parts, making it more manageable and less daunting to learn. In addition, try to practice these examples to a metronome, take it slow at fist, and then build up your speed. This way you'll play better and be tighter and be practicing multiple skills all at the same time, very nice.

Best of luck, and I really, really appreciate it if you are taking the time to learn these guitar tapping examples I have put together. Thank you for your persistence, and as always, happy practicing.


Want to sound clearer while tapping?

Somethings we can do to sound clearer and less messy while tapping is to use fairly low action and, in addition, using lighter gauge strings may help (though if you are going to be detuning, then a heavier gauge would be more suitable).

Consider adding a compressor pedal to your set up. This will really help bring up the volumes on any tapping you do and balances the over all sound out nicely.
This, combined with a delay pedal can really thicken your sound.

I've used a Boss compressor for compression in the past and this has worked great. I use a boss delay pedal for my delay sound, though any delay pedal should do the job though^^.
