Practice until you can hit hard and fast at the same time. It's that simple.

Uhhh, don't give up and use a pick. Fingers and pick are completely different. They sound completely different and you do completely different things with them.

When you're using your fingers, make sure you're pulling off after you tap the string, or nothing will ring out properly.

although tapping sounds cool, it should not be your primary method of soloing. after a little while, it will just sound cheap.

Although posting sh*t like this on the UG fourms might seem like a good idea, it should not be your primary method of communication. After a little while, it will just piss people off.

I personally think learning to use your fingers would do you a lot more good than using a pick...but again, you'll probably want to be able to do both.

I think Rhoads taps with a pick on Crazy Train though, so I guess you could learn it that way if you're trying to nail the solo.

learn with fingers, it's more accurate, and the note is more articulate/loud w/e u wanna call it.

With the pick you get that typical "spastic" satch tap sound, and finger is fluid, because you get a more legato like sound.

Cool tapping that you can do with finger;
