i read the sticky before posting this and the sticky only metioned the motion of pulling up and down and some exercises


does it matter if you have your hand on the body on the guitar while you tap? i kind of rest my hand while i i tap against the string

how important is the angle on the hand in tapping? should i keep my hand perpendicular to the strings as i tap or parallel?


any help is appreciated

I tend to do the same thing if I am tapping in the same area with my free 3 fingers (holding the pick) it seems to help me with accuracy but obviously it is limiting when trying to tap spread out, so I do both depending on the situation.

To be honest it doesn't matter that much but you might want to consider that having your hand on the body of the guitar will only limit your range of motion and you'll have trouble when trying to tap lower down on the neck as well.

The angle of your hand doesn't matter that much as long as you're striking the string as close to the fret as you can and coming down as close to perpendicular to the neck as you can.
