There's a fabulous tapping riff thingy that I want to get down, but don't know really the exercises to make that possible...For example:

"Them Bones" by Alice in Chains has a riff in the solo when Cantrell just LAYS it on...I think it's something like this.

that's like saying you might wanna try out this guitar but I just wanna warn you the action blows and it sounds like a bunch morons trying to screw a door knob

Looks like it's a pretty common run. No real tapping needed, just work on that hammer-on and pull off technique. Take it slow and make it clean. If I were playing it, I'd use alternate picking to grab that D on the G string.

Should I keep my middle finger on the D, or should I just hammer on to it? I would think keeping the middle finger on the D would make life easier...but I dunno.

Yeah, I don't think you would need tapping for that, for me it's just muting the G string after the D.

You can do that. Like Marcus said, alt. pick the G to B string.

I would at least lift it a bit to reduce the note from bleeding into the other notes, but that's personal preference.

Oh, and I didn't see the tuning half step down... I just saw the tab on the original post, so yeah... Db

^^Bah, didn't even look at the tab. I had to look this over a couple of times.

Yep, you're right.
