I have this weird thing that i do in a couple solos. its tappng but im not really sure exactly what to call it. it sounds good only when played thru an amp usually cause then you only get the sound from the pickups- youll see what i mean if you try it:
--------------17-------
------------------------
---------15 -----------
-----------------17----
------------------------
------------------------

the 15 is tapped w/the middle finger of the left hand, the 1st 17 with the middle of the right hand, and the last note with the index of the right hand.
is there a name for this thing?

I've seen buckethead do something similar. Basically, it's tapping with two fingers on the right hand instead of one.
The notes could be anything. The notes does not determine a technique :p then every single lick ever would be a "technique"

so theres no specific name for it? not this particular lick, but the idea?


At a push you could call the 15 a hammer on from nowhere but is still tapping.

yeah i guess so. its kinda of hard to expand on the idea, though, its hard to find licks that sound good in this style of tapping. this and one or two variations are the only ones ive got
