Hey I need some help.... about 5 minutes ago I just mastered Eruption but when I get to the tapping part you can barely hear the tapping..... what can i do to increase the volume of it? Right now im using a Gibson Explorer and its switched on to the 500T Humbucker and Through a 15G Fender Frontman Amp with the Scott Ian Black-13 pedal

maybe you just have to put more emphasis on the pulling off bit of the tapping, the kind of flick you do with your tapping finger. I used to have the same problem because of this

Well you see..... I dont use my finger I use my pick so could that be the problem?

What particular part is sounding wrong? The actual hit or the pull off or hammer on? I find it easier and cleaner to hit with the flesh of the tip of my index.

More dsitortion. and also, for Eddy's tone, a neck pickup is not necessary, as his Frankenstein charvel has no neck pickup

$10 he never used it in the studio.
