alright, so my guitar teacher and I are working on songs that use technical phrasing, two hand tapping, live improvization, blah blah blah: essentially math rock kind of bands.

now i know about bands like minus the bear, pele (from Milwaukee whoooo), tera melos, etc. but i need more. and not just the band names, but specific songs. songs with technical tapping/two hand tapping. i am asking you to do this for me because i'm lazy and don't want to listen to every song in every math rock band's catalog for really cool tapping riffs.

so basically just post the name of a song in this kind of genre that you think has a really cool tapping part or just a good math rocky riff

Dillinger Escape Plan - 43% Burnt

or Sugar Coated Sour (also Dillinger)

not sure how technical the songs are i just know theyre mathcore, theyre good and they have crazy fast parts in them haha
Bloodmeat by protest the hero has a cool tapping bit.
bands/artists I've seen: Protest the Hero, LIGHTS, Andrew Bird, Flight of the Conchords, Incubus, Nine Inch Nails, Between the Buried and Me, Guthrie Govan, Cynic, The Devin Townsend Project, Scale the Summit, The Dillinger Escape Plan, Darkest Hour
I dunno, something by The Fall of Troy maybe. The Dark Trail sounds like something thatd work. Not sure if it has tapping though. Might try some Dillinger Escape Plan too, although I dont think it has much tapping...

definitely the best spam thread today!

It's the first Mike Sullivan and Colin Dekupier from Russian Circles were in together. Really amazing stuff.

Really, really great smooth, technically awesome stuff. It's a must.

this. not a ton of tapping, but its math rock at its peak. check out their other EPs if you can get a hold of them.

which one do you recommend ?
