CHAPTER 1 

By the end of this lesson you will be able to travel up and down the length of the top string using multi-finger tapping. You will also learn how to adjust both your fretting and tapping grip to fit into and complement specific harmonic contexts. Finally, you will also learn to connect tapping patterns in a way that keep your hand relaxed and your playing in time with the music.

CHAPTER 2

By the end of this lesson you will be able to move up and down the length of the top string using legato tapping as well as combining legato tapping with multi-finger tapping as covered in lesson 1. As always, the emphasis will be on being able to execute these multiple techniques whilst staying relaxed and in time with the music.

CHAPTER 3

By the end of this lesson you will be able to connect multi-finger and legato tapping patterns with pentatonic tapping patterns and legato playing as well as making use of each of these patterns to cross strings on the guitar neck. You will be shown how to combine and use all the patterns you have learned so far to move both up and down the instrument horizontally and vertically.

CHAPTER 4

In this lesson we will study a variety of licks that use tapping to form at least part of their melody. Apart from adding to your library of patterns and tapping technique, these licks will also show you how to connect tapping with other popular guitar techniques such as bends, slides vibrato etc. Of prime importance is how many of the styles presented are in styles of music often not thought compatible with tapping.

CHAPTER 5

In this final lesson you are presented with two contrasting solo pieces that involve all of the ideas and concepts presented across the last four chapters. You will be then be able to play these solos at various tempos with the downloadable backing tracks that are integral to the learning process of this publication. Once completed you will have a excellent grasp of tapping and how to use it it a myriad of improvisational scenarios.
