Thread: Tapping!

    I have been tapping for a bit now and I love it. It adds a new level to my creativity. I want to know how to successfully mute unwanted string noise while tapping. Say.......if I`m doing a tapping sequence on the G string how do I keep the strings aboveĢ below muted. I tried with the palm of my right hand while tapping with right index and you can hear my palm move up and down the fretboard and it sounds terrible. If I don`t mute the strings they ring out, not loud but enough to notice. Any advice helpful. Thanks in advance!

    You should be muting unwanted string noise with your left hand (if you're right handed) or you can also put a string dampening device over the first fret. This could be a hairband or even a sock.
