Though the birth of tapping is largely associated with the eighties decade, players had begun experimenting with it as early as the mid-to-Iate seventies. Namely among them are session whiz Larry Carlton and the inimitable Jeff Beck. It was only a matter of time before someone would truly exploit the technique and harness the potential it possessed. Eddie Van Halen almost singlehandedly
introduced the technique to the guitar world with the release of Van Hafen near the turn of the decade. Rock guitar players everywhere jumped on the bandwagon, and within a few years a new breed of tappers emerged with their own style. Players such as Greg Howe, Steve Lynch, Reb Beach, and Jennifer Batten twisted and reinvented the technique, achieving unprecedented results. More recently in the nineties, fusion and contemporary guitarists Stanley Jordan and T.J. Helmerich took it to the next level, in many instances getting rid of the pick all together.
The objective of this book is to provide some different ways of using the tapping technique. The licks presented here draw from the styles of all the above-mentioned masters. Therefore, a great variety of techniques will be covered. It is hoped that you'll find many ideas in this book that you'll be able to incorporate into your own playing. Good luck and enjoy.
