8 Finger Tapping - The Basics

Had a thought of doing an 8 finger tapping lesson for guitarists that just started messing around with this technique! These are very basic stuff, like placing your right hand on the neck and a basic exercise!

    He's using the Pick Clip that Chris Broderick created. It's very nice to have, when attempting this technique. If you're not going to use this, or a thumb pick, the only place you can store your pick in between your teeth.

    Pretty cool stuff!I just have one question: where do you leave your pick when you switch from picking to 8 finger tapping and back? it's usefull to play with a thumbpick but not everyone uses that, right?
