Helloes, I started to practise this, but what is your opinion for sound setup for it? Chorus or delay or both? What helps the sound to make it easier and better sounding.

Another thing is very basic, do I need to tap hard string against fretboard or how I should tap effectively?

Thanks in advance

I personally think that delay is more effective than chorus

I lack any kind of effect other then a gain channel and personally I find it more effect as I can focus more on the sound of a single note playing when it's needed.

Set-up wise, I'd suggest bridge pickup with gain and neck pickup with cleans (using a compressor on clean tones).

Don't practice with any effects to begin with, regardless of what anyone else says. You need to be able to produce a strong, confident sound on a dry clean setting before you start masking your ability with effects! Doing it this way will also allow you to hear how hard or soft you should be tapping, we can't really tell you via the internet, you need to be able to hear it for yourself.

Afro took the words from my mouth! Exactly what he said, practice it clean and then when it's truly in time and well played it'll sound amazing with effects because there are no errors. :)

Yes, one thing I learned here is that I depart playing and practising. I do practise with cleans, but I wondered that when I start to try it out with playing with background say metal forexample, I wondered any tips for effects and setups that it dont messed out or that are commonly used in it.

I feel comfortable tapping with my left hand, but I wondered is there any methods for two handed tapping. That is also one thing I wish to try out. Any suitable lick for it could be also good.

Thanks again.

If you're thinking of one string two-handed tapping, maybe look at the solos in One or Master of Puppets by Metallica.

For multiple finger tapping, you have to look at New Blues by Satriani. Try and watch him do it on YouTube first though, just so you can see the technique being used. A very easy and very catchy song I think!

When you really have the technique down you can actually do it on an acoustic. Now that I think of it, it would'nt be a bad idea to practice that way. On an electric, even on a clean setting, you can still get the effect even when doing it wrong or not well I should say. But on an acoustic you don't get anything unless you're doing it right.

I don't know. Just a thought.
