    Default Tapping in Judgment Day

    Can someone PLEASE help me with this

    I know the fingering and where to go but I cant get it to sound right, theres always notes sounding that I don't want to sound, should I get a noise suppressor pedal?

    A video or any tips would be greatly appreciated

    Dude, first of use your neck pickup because that has less sustain(in most cases then the bridge and thats what Eddie uses when he does this. make sure that you are muting the strings with your left palm if you are going over the top of the neck with this, this should eliminate unwanted notes that are sustaining. watch the RHRN video, he does it in the song and i think he does this in the main guitar solo/ eruption and stuff. Remember that your left palm can fully rest on the neck. If you dont go over the top of the neck that it may be a little more difficult to dampen the strings. keep jammin!!!!

    Takes practice!! I had the same issue with it. Play it real slow at first making sure the right notes are sounding clean and then work it up to speed.

    Does he use his neck pickup throughout the whole song?

    It doesnt sound very crunchy and trebley through the whole thing

    the camera angles make it kind of hard

    Nope, mostly bridge pickup. And yes, he does use a phaser for the solo on RHRN.

    Try putting the fourth finger of your left hand across the strings, to dampen them. You could back off the volume knob a little bit, too.

    ok ill try that

    does he use the bridge pickups just for the tapping, or for the tapping and the solo after?

    When your doing the part rest your left hand on the neck muting the notes that aren't being hit. Just make sure not to have your right hand hitting the other strings or else the notes being tapped by the left hand will be muted.
