Finger Tapping With Chords

Let's Talk About Math Rock

Let's Talk About Math Rock

Published on 2 years ago

Hey, Steve here. In this video, I'll show you an approach to writing finger tapping ideas while holding chords. I aimed this lesson at those who are new to this style of finger tapping , but I think it'll be useful for those of who already know how to tap. Thanks.

Can you make a video showing examples of diminished finger tapping licks

For those who are familiar with the 3 notes per string scale, the root note of the maj 9 chord shape is the 4th degree of the mixolodyian shape. Edit: Also, for the min 9 chord, the root note is the 5th degree of the Aeolian shape.

What would your advice be for stopping unnecesary ringing of the strings when you pull off? I'm not sure if I'm tapping the strings too hard or what but I've been finding it annoying when to sound clean. Either that or maybe I just need to work on my precision a bit more.

Great stuff as always! Would you mind using a color other than red for the circles on similar future charts? Black and red are hard for colorblind eyes

Hey Steve! will there ever be a how to write/play like Sleepy Dog? That would be interesting seeing you analyze his method of writing


yeastiality . 2 years ago

cool video, also check out josh martin on youtube for some really advanced wacky tapping stuff (it's not maffrock but you could apply the same techniques)

Ramadan Steve

Ramadan Steve . 2 years ago

Thanks a lot for this. I have a question, I can usually come up with a cool sounding idea/arpeggio, but when trying to expand on that, my licks and phrases always become boring and predictable, and I have trouble mixing it up. Do you have any advice on getting out of the rut playing the same patterns?


OhMarcOh . 2 years ago

Can we have a tutorial on writing and playing in the tuning of DAEAC#E? D:
