Alright, I wrote these for you. They will make you a better player. Just do them slowly. Most importantly, use your pinky in the first exercise in Measure 1 for the "C" shape. Learn these using a clean tone first, then, and only then should you use distortion. And, a little hint for the tapping part. To eliminate extra feedback from your guitar (or just bad technique showing through) put a girl's hair band (scrunchy thing) like a capo on the 2nd fret of your guitar. It will only let the notes you tap shine through. Lovely idea, isn't it? Thank Luke of Protest The Hero. Like I've said before though, it's much better to do these in person.

cool stuff, though I'm not sure if this is the right forum for this kind of thing....

but one thing I'd like to point out is that you shouldn't believe that the PTH guy invented that hairband trick. bands have been tieing cloth or hairbands around their guitar neck for 40 to 50 years or more.
...Nothing you've ever...
...Planned on ever turned out...
...The way you planned...


...You're still disappointing them...

True enough, however Luke is a very talented guitarist that we both recognize, and was an example. As far as the forum goes, I believe you're right. However, I can't find anywhere else to put it.
