I have searched the forum here regarding tapping and there is a subject that i need some help with regarding tapping. See i have been playing about ten years and have always been more of a speed picker than legato man and i want to remedy this. i have found some good tapping excersises but there is one aspect that i am struggling with here. How do you keep adjacent strings from ringing out when you, cross to other strings say like maybe high E to B and like b to G and so on? Also i have the trouble of when i move my tapping hand up or down it makes a bit of noise. You know when i move to tapp a different note it makes noise on the strings i am trying to mute i can hear the palm of my hand scrapping the strings i am trying to mute, but if i lift my hand the strings ring with sympathetic vibrations.
also there is a tapping excercise that i am working on that i (On the B string) tap #12 and pull off to #8 then #5 then hammer on to #8, next you hammer on from nowhere to #5 on the G string then back to the 8th fret on the B string, pull off to #5 on that string and then hammer on to the 8th fret, and then repeat. I have the trouble of when i cross back over to the B string from the G string hammer on from nowhere to the 8th fret i have trouble kepping the G string from ringing out when i make this move. Any help would be greatly appreciated from you my fellow players, thank you and god bless. ROCK-ON!!!!!!!!!!!!
