The Time Has Come (Bridge Tapping)

When I first started the blog, I focused mainly on song variations, and I didn't bother to video myself. One of the first few (and quite well-received) posts was on a tapping riff which I did on the Time Has Come's bridge, but without any video. Finally got around to doing it (after months!), hope you like it:



Effects-wise I used a dotted 8th note delay, and slow depressed my wah pedal as I played. I put the guitar volume really loud in the video, try to turn it down in church, using it more as a background techno-ish sound.

Tabs:

Plucking Part:
Pluck the following two notes 16x2 = 32 times rapidly (see video)
---------
---------
-6---7---
---------
---------
---------

Pluck each note twice (something like this.. feel free to vary it)
-------------9------10-9----9------------
-----10---10---10--------10---10---10----
-9-9----9---------9--------------9-----9-
-----------------------------------------
-----------------------------------------
-----------------------------------------

Then play the following chords:
--------
-10--9--
-9---9--
--------
--------
--------


Tapping Part:
All the tapping is done on the E string (the thinnest string), so I excluded all the other strings.

umm, for the tapping part, are you using your index finger, i dont see you moving it.

I believe the first and second taps are as follows

10-5-2 over F#m
and
9-5-2 over Bm, not 11-5-2
