    Default Van Halen did not invent tapping???

    Even though I know Eddie did not invent it he is given credit with perfecting it. I stumbled up on this on youtube and was wondering if anyone else has seen it? I question it a little because for 1965 the video quality is quite good. Regardless whoever this guy is he's friggin good!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Who ever said Eddie invented tapping? He just popularized it.

    it's all good. I read somewhere in an interview with ED that Billy Gibbons actually gave him the idea after seeing him do it with just one note at a concert and he just ran with it.

    I've seen a live video where Hendrix did it in very small doses
    Once Ed perfected it 1,0000000 guitar players started doing it
    One of my favs was Jeff ??? From night ranger did a 8 finger pull off
    He had smooth taps and pull offs
    Guy kinda dropped off the face of the earth like alot if 80s guitar players
    I SURVIVED TEXAS LINKERS WEEKEND I, II, III, IV and VI and VII.barely made it to VIII time to slow down
    I musta had a broken middle finger for V

    read interviews with Eddie in which he's said he go the idea from watching Jimmy Page at a Led Zeppelin concert.

    Ed just added his own hammer on Technique.

    Theres video's floating around of Chet Atkins tapping a few notes way back in the 50's and plenty of jazz guys doing it before then.
