Ok so theirs songs like Vela together we await the storm, by THA or stuff by Protest the Hero.

And i find the 2 hand tapping techniques really hard to keep clean without the vibration of the other strings killing the sound.

The is somekind of technique that i cannot work out how to keep it clean.

any help? clips?

Practicing slow would be the obvious and correct answer.

Some amps tend to amplify the vibrations a little too much as well. I know I play a hell of a lot cleaner on my friends' amps than I do on mine.

On the latest Guitar World DVD(I think that's the one), they had a Protest the Hero lesson. They were going over Bloodmeat, and the lead guitarist(I forget his name)said to help cut the noise from the other strings, he uses a girl hair tie. Here's the link for it.

Hope that helps!

Use the headband trick, or try and use more of you right hand flesh to mute the hammer ons.


i really dont wanna be saying " hey check this tapping thing out, oh wait ill just get the hair tie on there..."

^Well you could use the index finger on the left hand to mute the strings after you play them, like a capo.

yeah, and who wants to rely on equipment anyway?
you should be able to play it if you have an amp and a guitar with all the frets you need in reach

The key, as Guthrie says in the video, is the muting technique; a good guitarist doesn't need the hairband or anything like that.

That's the 'studio' take of Fives and if you watch the taping licks at 1:02 and 1:44 he pulls them off absolutely cleanly with no hair band at all, even if it is on the guitar.
