Below is a 3 count tapping exercise. Simply tap the 12th fret using either your Index or Middle finger. Keep your Index finger on your left hand on the 5th fret so when you pull off with your right hand it produces an A note. Then hammer onto the 8th fret and repeat. Start slowly and build speed once you are capable of getting clarity within each note.
The next exercise goes through the notes of the pentatonic scale.
I came up with the following exercise when playing around in the Hungarian minor scale. It’s a little bit trickier then the previous examples but give it some practice and you will have no problem with it soon enough!
And lastly we have tabbed out the tapping solo to the original Mighty Morphin Power Ranger’s theme.
Before we end this lesson we are going to share a very simple yet very useful little exercise to build your tapping skills.
This Tapping exercise requires 4 fingers on both hands. Staring with your index finger on your left hand holding the 5th fret of your A string, hammer on to the 6th fret with your middle finger, hammer on to your 7th fret with your ring finger and then hammer onto your 8th fret with your little finger. After this you will do the exact same pattern with your right hand, starting with your index finger on the 12th fret. Do this many times over many different days until you can get a nice flow without a gap in between your 8th and 12th fret. This simple technique will get you use to working with all your fingers on both hands, allowing you more freedom with your guitar.
