Melodic Tapping

The following section is from 'The Eternal Thinker' from my album 'Persistence Of Vision'. It illustrates how the idea of tapping can be developed to play melodies. There are some fairly large stretches and some odd note-groupings throughout the section, so it is important to practice it slow and cleanly. There are two main melodies occurring simultaneously, one high and one low. The chords that the melodies are derived from are given on the tab.
