String skip tapping
Playing familiar stuff with large interval skips
Tapping is as a technique where you produce notes by hammering on and pulling off the fretboard with the fingers of your picking hand (usually right hand, left if you play leftie guitar). This way you can play legato style with wide interval skips.
Let's say we want to break out the traditional pentatonic tapping licks and spice them up a bit by introducing even larger intervals between notes. We do this by string skipping! It's basically the same as regular playing but you're not playing on consecutive strings anymore, you're skipping some of them!
These licks can be somewhat strenuous for the fretting hand so don't overplay.
Patterns two and four
In this exercise we will combine two pentatonic patterns. For the first lick we will take the second pattern and the first half of the third pattern.
Now we're gonna alternate between the left and the right note of the higher pentatonic pattern. I tap this with my index and ring finger, but if you want, you can use your middle finger instead of the ring. It's more powerfull, but you'll have to stretch it a bit.
At the end of this lick there is a tap slide. After you tap just slide your tapping finger.
And here we do both notes of the higher pattern on all strings. It's difficult, but don't give up!
