I've been learning this song for a while now and I can play it fine, it's just that around mid way through it i start to feel alot of lactic acid in my left forearm, i'm just wondering whether this is more a technique issue of if it's just down to the extra pressure needed to make the tapped chords ring out and different muscle groups which maybe aren't used as much during regular playing? Obviously if it's a technique issue it needs fixing but otherwise it would just be down to practice and building up stamina.

Thanks in advance.

It is the muscles in your arms. You dimply need to build these muscles. It also helps to relax your arm when playing anything you find difficult. Make your arm relax. You should stop then relax for a couple seconds while your hands stay in the same place. Then resume the exact place you left off from. I find it helps you relax through the entire selection and youll feel less pressure.

Thanks, i thought that was more likely, just decided it was better to check since tapping chords rather than single notes is pretty much new to me with this song
