Mighty To Save (pick-tapping instrumental)

Here's a technique that I just picked up today - instead of tapping with your fingers, use the fingers on your fretting hand, but the pick on your picking hand. This enables you to attain really amazing speeds. Here's how I applied it to the Mighty to Save instrumental (with a sweeping wah effect); its still quite experimental at this stage, and I definitely need more practice, but here's something to get you guys going:



Tip: move the picking hand as little as possible, and watch out for the other strings as well.

o.o well not exactly the correct way. the original way is much easier and doesnt require the double tapping. not saying yours is bad but it can be easier. u can find it on youtube. its the mighty to save workshop.

The original solo is definitely easier, and more melodic. I tabbed it somewhere else in the site as well.

I did this more because I was fooling around with the technique actually, so don't take it too seriously, although I would like to hear from you if you intend to use something similar for service!

It'll be great if you've mastered sweeping. Then it'll will sound more solid and with the wah2 effect, its gonna be great!

This a great technique. I use this sometimes in my praise playing, although it picked it up from Joe Satriani...

For those who wish to acquaintance the adorableness and affluence of Swiss Bell Ross watches but don't wish to absorb abundant money, they should go for added ideal options. Besides, allurement for the agreement and acceptance that accredit you to actuate the amount of the acclimated timepieces is acerb recommended.
