nice, you've seen that piano/guitar solo vid too?

Yes, it's awesome.

Seriously, go for it. It's hard to keep it clean and sounding good unless you do that wristband cheat thing that Synyster Gates of A7x does for his regular playing, though. It'll require tons of practice.

ive tried it before, but i sucked so bad when i tried XD and your right it is
Synyster's all right but his solos onstage could be better, honestly some of them just sound like vomiting with gain -_-

You need the right tone if you're gonna do two hand tapping.......I use harmony, reverb and delay. The delay is set to play the note at the same time. So it's like 3 guitars at once with harmony and delay.

It cancels out that open string ring and it sounds like Satch's midnight tone.

The reverb just helps, I keep all 3 on a really high setting too. I haven't figured out a good tone for distorted two hand tapping though.

That's tough to get because too much gain means you have crap tone for everything, but if you use too little your sound doesn't project right and it sounds a lot smaller than it really is. So it's all about balance between all of your tone controls really. Just fiddle around with it for a few hours and you'll get it I'm sure.

TS, have you ever thought of working with a slide? That's how I get my kicks playing, I love slide guitar. It's epic if you can really get it down.

What's the point of having a thread in the Pit if it doesn't involve anything sexual at all?

Eight fingered tapping is pretty cool. Very flashy and adds a whole new element to your playing.

Yeah it is; I tried learning it one day but gave up because it's so damn difficult.

Edit: Have you tried segmenting arpeggios (I think that's what it's called)?

For example:

-17-13-----13---------------20-17-13-------------
-------15-----15--------------------------
----------14----14-------14----------------
-----------------------15-------------
--------------------17----------------
-----------------------------------

I'm pretty sure there is a name for stuff like that.
