I started with tapping and I really like to concept of it, I think it has a lot of potential, but I don't know where to start. Does anybody know any licks or exercises or just a good place to start? I play rock and heavy metal.

What bands do you listen to? "I play rock and Heavy Metal" is quite a vague description. Also, what kind of tapping ideas do you enjoy? There is a big difference between tapping ala Kirk Hammett


Tapping ala Michael Romeo (0:40)


Tapping ala Chris Letchford


or more of a fusion approach to tapping.

Fusion and jazz musician, a fan of most music.

I have never heard of Chris Letchford but I really like it. But yes something along those lines
^ if you like that style, midnight by satriani is maybe a bit easier. or shorter, anyway.

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

Presumably because the CCF (Combined Corksniffing Forces) of MLP and Gibson forums would rise up against them, plunging the land into war.
