Thread: Can anyone here multifinger tap?

  1. Can anyone here multifinger tap?

    Im trying to learn how to tap with all fingers on the right hand but i cant figure out how to mute. I really dont want to use a mute at the first fret. Does anyone multifinger tap here?

    as much as you dont like it... I'd say use a hair tie that you can slide onto the first fret. One day when you've become quite the 8 finger tap machine... then experiment with no mute. I've done it for a while and I've found that when trying to learn how to effectively tap with the right hand AND mute, it can become quite overwhelming. There is no shame in using a hair tie... haha
    Watch a live video for the Protest the hero song, ______ Throne (i forget the first word)
    he slides a hair tie up to fret 4 or 5 so immediately after the sweeping he can go into the 6 or 7 finger tapping riff to end the song (same riff as the intro)

    TLDR version.. tap now, learn to mute later

    I'd say start slow and learn to mute with your picking hand..

    multi finger tap??!?! I can barely tap using one finger. How do you guys figure out what notes to tap with your right hand?? I mean all I've been doing is the van halen eruption thing and it's getting old.
    I got 3 more frets than you

    There's a french guy who made a whole EP with 8 fingers (or 9 ??) tapping... Daniel Peroine or just google him, you'll find a lot of stuff he also gives some masterclass (but dunno if he travels a lot or no at the moment).
