Pay attention to him when he does it at G3. It's five finger. Though admittedly, it looks like his pinky is being used. Two fingers on my fretting hand are rested at the bottom of the fretboard, and it only looks like he's using his pinky. It doesn't hit any notes if you listen, though. It's just comfortable to keep his ring and pinky fingers close.

try bucketheads ballad of buckethead. Not sure if its 8 or 10, but its the same thing, right?


i dont think even bucketheads good enough to do ten. that would mean using your thumbs to tap. o and to the other dude im starting to think your right about only 5 fingers. i typed before i thought lol. but anyway its a good song to start with

That's only 5 fingers tapping.


This Buckethead lesson by Buckethead shows how to do 8 finger taping.

Also like a week ago I made a tutorial how to do 6 finger tapping since you almost get same effect but a lot easier. Here's the pic from the GP4 file, to use enjoy.
EDIT: Lick is meant to be played at 180 bpm forgot to mention that.
