Well, I was recently learning the tapping part to The Forgotten by Joe Satriani, and I realized that the sound was completely off. If I play the notes normally, it sounds as it should, but when I tap it, the sound is completely off, more of a mix of a very low sound and a very high sound.
What could be wrong here, intonation, something else? I'm a n00b when it comes to problems on my guitar.
I don't need a sig....

were you playing through an amp or not? if you arent playing through and amp and you tap you get the notes from both sides of the fret

Yeah, if you're not playing through an amp, you're getting sound from both sides of the fret, so if that's the problem, then just plug in to an amp.

How do normal hammer-ons and pull-offs sound (without picking just doing left hand legato)?

If they sound ok you may need to develop calluses on your tapping finger/s because soft skin on the finger tips can actually mute the sound. Try tapping using your pick everytime the right hand taps; if it sounds ok that way I bet it is the callus needing to be built up.

maybe he uses a whammy pedal??

that could explain the mix of very low and very high sounds..

i havent heard the song...
