"seems pretty simple"
not for me tapping on one string is no prob with two fingers but when it involves more than 2 strigns it becomes a problem especially at the speed that fantasie impromtu is played at..

You're talking about Ron Thal's version of Fantasie Impromptu? Yeah that's friggin' hard... There's a kid (17 years old) over at the Petrucci forum who posted a video of himself playing it perfectly. Pretty impressive...

Whatup chums...

M'friend Ian linked me to here. Thanks a lot for the kind words, aiwass. Smilie I'm 16... It's nowhere near perfect, but I appreciate it... here's the link if anyone is interested:

As far as the 11th fret thing... you actually don't let the notes ring together. Use your middle and ring fingers to tap (well, use whatever is comfortable for you, actually... I just meant that Bfoot fingered it like that).

Hope this helped,
Ben
