So I'm kind of new to this technique. I'm really trying to learn it as best I can, and I was wondering if anyone else in this part of the forums knows how/ is learning how to lap-tap? If so do you have any tips and tricks for a beginner? Pretty much all I know right now is that it's best to be in an open tuning, and the easiest harmonics to hit are the ones on the 1st and 2nd strings on the 7th and 12th frets.

Yup... just mess around with open tuning and "hammering on" notes with your left and right hand to create some structure based on the tuning and harmonics..

maybe slap your guitar to make a drum beat while your at it!

If you have a nice acoustic, tie a bandanna or something around the head stock so you dnt get that annoying "ring ring ring" from the string up on the headstock.
