Watch the Te Extraño online guitar lesson by Stu Hamm from Stu Hamm U: Solo Bass

Time to take a look at the performance for Te Extraño. Tapping is a great tool when used musically, and a burden to us all when it is not! The key is, of course, to only use this technique when the MUSIC requires it. I hope that you enjoy this Homage to Astor Piazzolla that uses many different tapping styles to create a certain mood. Pay close attention to the left hand warm ups and the "shaking" part...this will really build your calluses! The pull-off sections is also an introduction to a very tricky passage, so work on this first and then you won't be so overwhelmed when you come to this part of the piece.
