hey guys, i was wondering have you guys ever gone through phases where you cant tap? its really weird, for about a week i was learning the tapping section of eruption, i could play it perfect, then yesterday i went to play it and i cant get the timing right, and it sounded like crap, and the week before it sounded absolutely perfect. Do you guys go through phases like this? i still cant do it at all today

sometimes. but it's usually just because I've forgotten to cut my nails or something.

Yeah. people, like Lemoninfluence, are hypocrites and should have all their opinions invalidated from here on out.

Yeah but usually its because I've not tapped enough recently and the calluses are wearing away or because some part of my setup is turned down where it shouldn't be or a switch is on the wrong place, etc.
