Guitar Tapping Techniques
3. Building the strength of your right hand

In this section I'll show a few ways to make tapped notes sound clear and their tone full.

First examples (fig. 6 and fig. 7) is tapping the notes on the same string, but an octave higher than the notes you play with your left hand. If you do this properly, you will hear a tapping harmonic slightly appearing if you tap with your middle finger. You probably won't be able to fully induce tap harmonic this way. You can do it if you hit a higher note with your index finger of your right hand.

In second example (fig. 8) you play a tone (in this case it is A) with your left hand, and then you play it with your tapping finger. It should have same sustain. If you want to add vibrato to your tapping version of this exercise, do the vibrato with your left hand finger added somewhere lower than the note you play with your tapping finger on the same string.

In third example (fig. 9) you hold your left hand finger on B note and tap and slide with your tapping finger. This kind of exercises will strengthen your tapping finger hammer-off a lot!
