read title(always wanted to say that....)

for me it will have to be the beginning of For The Love Of God by Steve Vai.(its not acctually the begginning as part of the intro solo kinda in the end before the background music starts).


your opinion?

If guitar solos count as songs, I would have to say that Eruption is weak compared to EVH's live 316 solo off the Right Here Right Now 2 disc set.

I think that Spanish Fly is pretty sweet to.

And Randy Rhoads is also a great tapper too. Just because he's dead doesn't mean he's not great. Doesn't he deserve the same respect that Hendrix and Dimebag and many others deserve?

EDIT: Oh, and Eddie didn't invent the two-handed tap, as many agree. He just popularized it.

Rory Gallagher used a tap on the song "Moonchild" which was re-leased before Eruption and Gallagher didnt invent tapping so it was before that.

And Midnight or Day at the beach by satch, eruptions good but over-used and hot for teacher is ace.

Who DID start tapping first? Or is it actually some old technique that the devil himself came up with? I don't mean to sound sarcastic, I am just curious as to who it was.

EVH got his idea of tapping from a short tap lick that page used on heartbreaker. but it was done before by some blues artist if i remember right.

That part of the solo in One. But then again I just bum Metallica, so....

I'm betting tapping has been around since the days when mandolins were around Some medieval shred minstrel

Or, like EVERYTHING else, the Chinese had already done it by like 250 BC...

as you can read above that blues artist was rory g. ^^ love the man lol
page didnt actually do tapping on heartbraker, he just plays incredibly fast with awesome reach so that this guy Eddie hear sees it and thinks 'hm i can use that tap thingy and then really fast to play that without having my fingers hurt' and he did and There Was Eruption. ^^

Who gives a flying **** who invented tapping? How many guitarists were doing it before Eddie Van Halen? What like 2-3 tops? How many after EVH? Millions. I don't give a shit if EVH invented it or not. Bottom line is he brought it into the rock picture and inspired millions of guitarists to do it.

I actually really like the stuff in My Apocolypse by Escape The Fate to, even though they are a queer band.

Crazy Train solo ftw. Randy Rhoads is amazing..That has to be the most emotional tapping I've ever heard. Oh, and Eruption is good too, obviously.

Actually a good few were doing it before Van halen and it was a documented technique, just it was Van halen who made the 'tap-hammer on' trend.

Surfing With The Alien is quite cool to listen too. He goes from very melodic to just a stupidly fast tapping part. Nice!!!

BUT, my favorite tapping part in a song will forever be Opeth The Grand Conjuration. I cant get over how well that solo starts out with the tapping. It also made me start tapping on lower strings than just E and B.

The tapping part in hell bent for leather just seems to fit the song perfectly.

Jazz guitarists tapped long before EVH got his idea off of Heartbreaker.

My favorite tapping has to be from In Flames - The Hive and the Power Rangers theme song.

Reb Beach - Tapping Song (all tapping pretty much) but in a very tasteful way.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XZHVkJ1wVFM

Winger - Seventeen (the solo)

And yeah.. tapping started with Jazz guitar. They needed that extra reach and range to keep up with the trumpets and sax players sometimes.
#36
Ah, someone beat me to The Grand Conjuration. I'm not normally a huge tapping fan, because it tends to be overly repetitive, but I feel it fits in well in that song.
