Introduction to Two Finger Tapping – Lesson 97

In this lesson we get into two-finger tapping and the “2-2” technique.

Syn’s Tips

A lot of great licks in this one so take your time with each one and apply them to all of your arps and scales. Honestly, the last two lessons won't do you any good if you don't fully concentrate on them for at least a month! Whaaaaat?!!! YES, a month... MINIMUM!

The problem you will have, amongst many if you don't take the proper time with this stuff, is that you'll get these licks down in a week but they will only be in one context. For example, you'll know the first lick in A min, the second lick for G maj, the third lick in A minor again, and NO other applications. To get ANY worth from these, you have to know them in a multitude of varieties and contexts.

I continuously struggle trying to find the right balance between learning new material, and being able to apply them no matter what the context is!

Jack Migala I found a good trick to getting your pick out of the way is to slide it down your index finger and hold it between your thumb and the side of your index finger knuckle. It takes a bit of practice but once you get it it's a quick way to switch from playing with the pick to tapping and back again!

Pablo De Miguel How can I sound clean without putting that thing that Papa Gates puts in his guitar neck?

Brian Haner Sr. Syn uses a combination of his right and left hands to mute the strings he is not playing. CRAZY hard (but not impossible) to do and keep everything clean.
