Watch the Tapping online guitar lesson by Chris Buono from Guitar Gym: Tapping

The tapping Workouts you have before you will help develop this highly efficient and very cool playing technique, but not without putting the time in. Here in Guitar Gym :: Tapping you'll go from basic touches on the neck with your newly formed tap finger (T) to performing pull-offs to open strings while you add fretted notes in to the mix. And, that's just Level 1! In Level 2 you'll go down the path of the tried-and-true triplet-based tapped arpeggio sequence as well as working them out in 16ths. Level 3 delves into scalular tapping with runs on must-know Heptatonic modes including Ionian, Mixolydian and Aeolian.

Tapping is a technique that makes use of your pick hand fingers as possible legato playing instruments. For our purposes in this course you'll be using your pick hand 1st (T1) or your 2nd (T2) finger. In the charts throughout the course you'll just see a "T". I will leave the decision up to you as to whether you want to tap with your pick hand 1st finger with no pick in hand or your 2nd finger while cupping the pick in your pick hand 1st finger.

Level 1 starts your tapping development slowly and carefully by simply making contact with the strings on the neck in the form of hammer-ons with your chosen tap finger (T) in the first half of Workout #1. The second half will incorporate open strings to start introducing pulling-off with your tap finger. Workout #2 takes off from #1 by adding a fretted note in to the mix, while Workout #3 adds yet another. Ready?!
