    I was wondering if any of you consider yourselves "good" at doing fingertapping. I learned my own way, watching no one and I've searched the whole internet and can't find a good diagram or picture.Can someone help me?

    The best advice I can give you is to do what I did, and that is get a couple of VH concert videos and watch Eddie's solo over and over and just follow the best you can.

    it's basically something you have to get a feel for, but it's really cool when you get the hang of it.

    Put your neck hand on the neck and pick a string,Now, put your first finger down on a fret and skip a fret and put your third finger(your ring finger)down on the third fret from your first finger. Then,using your first finger on your other hand (some people continue to hold the pick and tap with their middle finger like I do) tap it down on the same string on another fret. Your neck hand shoud be doing hammer ons by keeping your first finger down and hitting the string back and fourth with the third finger, once you get thins going(sounds a little on the Hendrix side)start hammering down your picking hand finger onto the same string......I think you can get more info. on this subject at www.wholenote.com

    Watch the "Live Without A Net" video. Thats one of the most valuable guitar lessons you can give yourself, (that is if you love VH)!

    You know how Eddie says he only taps because he does it by instinct and it's part of his playing and it's not something he does to look "cool" or whatever. I am finding that I am the same way, where my right hand just goes to the fingerboard sometimes, it just seems to be part of my playing now, actually has been for years now. Weird. I know I'm not not doing it to look "cool" as it's pretty "uncool" to just solo, let alone tap.

    Are most tapping techniques based on triplets? I suppose you can tap to eights, and sixteenths if you're Paul Gilbert, but it seem like to me, a beginner may want to stick to triplets? Am I high or what?
