This is just a bunch of tapping on guitar. Nothing special.



It wasn't bad.The beginning of this sounded a lot like the end of the tapping sequence in eruption.Not to many mistakes but they are expected when you tap without getting a crap load of practice in.Overall good job and keep practicing.

I would suggest when you tap from now on get a bandana and a velcro(sp)strap roll up the bandana put it around the guitar neck lightly over the first fret so as to mute it then strap the velcro over the bandana to hold it in place.You then have a string dampener to mute the strings your not playing on.So long as you don't do any open fret tapping it really helps clean up the sound.Wow that was long.

Like I said in the other response, this was inspired by Eruption. I only recorded this when I was screwing around, and trying to get out some frustration from recording. This recording is old school(a year ago or so as of when I'm typing this).

I'm gonna have to at least try out that method to clean up the taps.

I appreciate your reviews bro.


cool. the beggining sounded kinda like Eruption... but yeah, tapping's not much i haven't seen (or perhaps 'heared'), but still yet, cool...

Metalholic115 responds:

Well, I have to say that Eruption kinda inspired this track. The solo was pretty simple and I went with tapping because it sounded pretty smooth. I'm surprised this is getting good reviews. Thanx for the review bro!


Very impressive indeeeeeed. It would sound better if I was having sex while listening to it (wtf!)... I mean, Good job!

Metalholic115 responds:

I did this trakc when I was just messing around and thought of recording a solo for the hell of it. It could be better, but I'm still proud of this one.

I liked it....

Not bad, not bad. I've heard tapping before, but hey, I can't do it. lol. No, it was pretty cool. Probably gonna be used in some action flash where one dude is kicking the shyza out of another dude. And on the other review, I meant to be funny with the whole "cat scratching at the moon...." thing. But I also feel being honest is the best way, without being a pric about it. I'm enjoying your stuff. I want more damn it!!

Metalholic115 responds:

I'm glad you enjoyed that. I'm working on some new stuff for my porject. For this, I was just kinda fooling around, because I can. Don't worry, there will be new stuff from me.
