I can tap perfectly fine, the only thing is its so quiet. How do you make it louder? Also how do you stop the string from bending? In the main riff from thunderstruck it always happens. thanks!

more gain... if you have a wah pedal use that as a boost

well your not tapping perfectly then.

only thing i can tell ya is to start slow till you are able to get the volume to be the same as freted notes. you also might want to try to tapp a little harder with your fingers.

maybe you're not pulling off/hammering hard enough, also, turning up the treble, gain, and lowering your string height may help you out.
#9
maybe its your action...maybe its too high? you prolly need to get it set up seeing that you are relatively beginner...otherwise i guess its your technique

Just hit it harder, and Thunderstruck doesn't have a tap part in the opening its just Thrilling.

Stop the bending? Don't play so hard, and don't keep contact when you tap. It should just be a "tap" nothing more.

your fingers will get used/better at it.

what exactly is trill? when i (try to) play thunderstruck i just use alternate picking, or if i feel like messing around tremelo picking and then just hit the notes. is that wrong?

then it's not actually tapping

the problem is, you're pulling the strings way too much... if you're picking them, there's no need for pulling them. fretting would be enough

1 - concentrate on your right hand not your left when playing. These are usually the most important notes of a sequence and create the vibration needed for your left handed notes.

2 - try and tap with more of a stroking motion and less perpendicular to the neck. This way your tap acts like a strum as well as a hammer-on.
Ever wonder what rock would have sounded like in 2010 if grunge hadn't made it cool to be stupid?
