I really want to learn how to play multi-fingered tapping runs like this guy: But I have no idea where to start. In particular, the lick at 0:12 is REALLY pissing me off - I can just find no conceivable way of playing it cleanly, even slowed right down. I know what frets he's playing and which fingers he's using, but I can't fucking replicate it without sounding terrible, try as I might. My right hand just doesn't work at the minute. I get a load of string noise and some weak, shitty sounding notes which are usually out of time, and out of tune because I've been concentrating so hard on the tapping that I've let the left-hand bend go flat. I actually find the faster lick at the end to be easier. I can do the rest of the solo, it's just that one bit near the beginning which is an absolute bastard. I understand that part of it is going to be letting all the fingers of my right hand get used to being on the fretboard, but it's so fucking difficult. It also sounds like shit when I try it because the record is horribly out of tune (1/2 way between Eb and E ), and that makes it that bit more of a pain in the neck. I really want to be able to play like this, but how can I get my right hand up to speed?
