thats not tapping, its string skipping.
Chances are, you'll never be able to play it, like 99% of guitarists.

EJ is picking the E string A's (fret 15) with his pick and hitting all the other notes by plucking them with his other fingers.

Near the end of the video there's a part where he shows you a technique similar to the one I use for this song.

(If its the wrong video, srry, my media player broke :-/)


Cool, ya thats the technique EJ uses for that part of the song. Isn't it also called chicken picking or is that something else?

I guess you guys are right on the string skip thing.
I guess its possible, but it'd be hard.

actually it's the other way around...he finger picks the 1st string & plectrum picks the rest
