    does anyone know of some good lessons on multi finger tapping?

    stuff like 7/8 finger tap and what not?


    or suggest what they might be into for practicing this technique?

    Check out some Night Ranger stuff. One of the guitarists, his name escapes me, uses the technique quite bit.

    T.G. Helmrich is also one to check out.

    When I get a chance I'll go see if I can find some lessons. Until then I think one of the best ways to look at it is like your training your fretting hand again. Try to play everything with it...run scales and stuff. Not the most in depth explanation I know, but I'm tired. I'll see what I can dig up later. Good Luck.

    Jeff Watson is the guy you're thinking of.

    Midnight by Joe Satriani is a great starting point, then playing 3 note per string scales with your right hand.

    Arpmandude from the band PsyOpus has a book out on just tapping. I haven't checked it out yet as he just sells it on ebay through copies he copies and sells himself. But I know it does cover everything you are looking for as Arpmandude is a weird dude.
