Me and some friends are goinng to be doing an alt. rock/classic rock (Skynyrd, Hendrix, Chili Peppers, etc.) show next weekend, and I'm looking for an impressive tapping lick as filler between songs to throw people off. I can tap pretty well (think Hot for Teacher intro) but I DON'T want to do Eruption. Any suggestions?

the crazy train solo has some tapping, but idk if that counts for you, its a pretty easy solo, though.

Flying High Again sounds good, but anything more contemprorary? I was hoping for a more metal solo as opposed to hard rock like Van Halen.

You could try the solo from One by Metallica, the tapping is easy but the rest of it is a challenge. Either way if I was you and could confidently play it i would 4 sure.

Daft Punk - Aerodynamic
Dave Mustain has wrote some of the most amazing solos...
That he can't actually play!

The tapping solo to In Flames - The Hive

Though I'd rather make up my own tapping patterns in a live setting...

try it as fast as you can and then try repeating it and moving it down strings or shifting the position down 2 or 4 frets. Easy, but when done fast its great.
