Two Handed Tapping Essentials Part 2

This series begins with the basic mechanics of the tapping technique. Firstly, we look at a bluesy lick that incorporates some tasteful tapping, before moving onto a faster arpeggio lick on one string.

3
Two Handed Tapping Essentials Part 3

Moving on from the previous arpeggio idea, we pick up the pace, getting the fingers moving by playing some fast, yet melodic tapping lines.

4
Two Handed Tapping Essentials Part 4

Our next step is to take what we learned in the previous video and add more notes by including open strings and getting more fingers involved in the action.

5
Two Handed Tapping Essentials Part 5

We now look at crossing strings using some of the ideas we looked at in the previous four lessons. This will enable us to play longer runs and create some interesting melodies.

6
Two Handed Tapping Essentials Part 6

Things really start to open up now. We look at some tapping runs using both the A minor pentatonic and E minor pentatonic scales, covering larger areas of the neck.

7
Two Handed Tapping Essentials Part 7

Again, covering a much larger area of the neck than in the earlier licks, we look at some fast ascending and descending tapping runs. This time, we’re using the Dorian scale, but feel free to experiment with other scales.

8
Two Handed Tapping Essentials Part 8

Now let’s look at some cool, fluid descending runs incorporating “Hammer-ons from nowhere”.

9
Two Handed Tapping Essentials Part 9

Next, we take a look at some movable tapped arpeggio shapes that utilise string skipping, allowing us to cover larger intervals.

10
Two Handed Tapping Essentials Part 10

Now it’s time to learn some fast trills using tapping, as well as another cool sounding and very useful ascending and descending pentatonic run.

11
Two Handed Tapping Essentials Part 11

We wrap things up with a couple of crazy tapping and sliding ideas using the side of the pick. Although slightly over the top, this could be an interesing idea to use during a long solo if you happen to run out of licks!

You can view and review the lecture materials indefinitely, like an on-demand channel.
Definitely! If you have an internet connection, courses on Udemy are available on any device at any time. If you don't have an internet connection, some instructors also let their students download course lectures. That's up to the instructor though, so make sure you get on their good side!
