Good luck.


It's one of the easiest relative to other string skip tapping stuff.

Who's Andy Timmons??
try Midnight by Joe Satriani.
fingers don't jump around too much through a part of it and it's played clean, so it's a good one to work on technique.

neck pickup + a touch of chorus gets me a good tone for it
Sea of Lies - Symphony X
Inferno (Unleash the Fire) - Symphony X
Basically, most if not all symphony X songs will have tapping+string skipping in it.

multi finger tapping:
Midnight - Joe Satriani
there was another Satch song which had the same style...
Building the Church intro + 2nd or 3rd solo - Steve Vai

overall tapping:

Green-tinted Sixties Mind - Mr Big (the intro riff)
Paul gilbert's solo rendition of technical difficulties has a fair amount of tapping in it:
