I've started trying to incorporate tapping more into my music and ive gotten it pretty good with just my index finger or just middle finger but i cant seem to get the concept down of using more than just one finger on the right hand. Anyone have any tricks or ideas on how to do it?

Ya know when this site is opening, and you see the hosts names? There is a guy called Schmange. He did this whole tutorial on tapping. Thats how I got good at doing it. I recommend you look at those.

One thing you might try doing is practicing chromatic runs on the fretboard with your right hand. When you improve try diatonic scales.

I picked up a great pattern which uses just the 1st and pinky fingers and allows scary turn of speed, I think I can hit inxs of 20notes/second with this one. It takes some learning but when you're used to it it's really easy. Apply the same pattern up and down the neck.

Have fun, bear in mind what usually is your picking hand is more coordinated and that flash as it all is tapping's a great way of cheating and making your life easier.

If I couldn't laugh at myself how could I laugh at someone less ridiculous?
