"Angel" Pt. 2: Tapping All Over The Neck
Here's the whole lick of the bridge section from the song Angel.
We saw the two first bars on the Angel pt1 column so our exercise really begins bar 3. This is almost a two hands tapping lick: your right hand (sorry for the left-handed guys that read this: I meant the picking hand...) will use two fingers to tap on the fretboard. Personally I use the third and the middle fingers.
It will also be better if you have something to mute your strings. The string dampeners are quite expensive, so just wrap a piece of cloth round the end of the neck with an elastic (but not too much because at the end of the lick there are some open strings to play).
Hope you'll have fun learning this one!

I was born on 1981 and I start playing guitar at 15. My main influences are Jason Becker, Shawn Lane, Stevie Ray Vaughan & Jimi Hendrix. I also play cello. In 2005 I recorded a weird CD called “The Mushrooms' Fantasy” which is a kind of heroic-fantasy parody (the songs are related to each others by a story involving Dark Mushrooms trying to invade the world...). There are many different music styles in this album (baroque music, flamenco, metal, symphonic & indian music, etc...) but the main style is progressive rock with shred & melodic guitar solos. I'm currently working on new music.
The music that I play is deeply influenced by blues, classical music & rock and my aim is to work with artists from every cultures.
