kk i'm trying to learn the intro to heroes of sand by Angra, it has 8 finger tapping..
its a beautiful peice of music, and it's my first time attempting to tap with 8 fingers, but i dont really understand it,
example :
L R L R
e ----------------------------------------17---------|
B --------8--------12------------------15------------|
G -----------------------------11---14---------------|
D ------9--------12----------------------------------|
A ----7---------------------12-----------------------|
E --0--------------------10--------------------------|

for this part would i hole barre down the 7th fret, and then the tenth or what???!?

No barring at all as far as I can see. I would play that like this:

e|--------------------------------17-
b|-------8-----12--------------15----
g|-----------------------11-14-------
d|-----9----12-----------------------
a|---7----------------12-------------
e|-0---------------10----------------
-----1-3-2--A--B---1--3--2--A--B--D--


I've used 1-4 for the fretting hand and A-D for the picking hand (because I can't remember the PIMA notation for the pinky) and I'd pluck the open E with your picking hand thumb. The high A will take the most practice by a long way, the pinky on your picking hand hardly ever gets used.

If you want to keep hold of your pick it's also possible to replace the As with Bs and the Bs with Cs but that would take more practice wo be able to do IMHO.

P believe I've seen the pinky as O and C before....


I'm pretty sure it's C in all the places I've seen it used but I wasn't sure enough to atcually write that just in case someone called me on it

8 finger tapping doesn't have to mean you're using 8 fingers. I'd classify anything where you're using more than one right hand finger to tap as 8 finger technique. That's just me, though.

Nice bump, btw.

How fast does this piece go? Is is supposed to be a quick lick, a shred, or a slow nice beautiful piece? Sounds like its the slow kind.
