Lead Guitar Lessons - Finger Tapping

Learn finger tapping with this free lead guitar lesson. Finger Tapping is when you hammer or "tap" the fret indicated with your pick hand index or middle finger and the immediately pull off. The next note is already fretted by your fret hand. Practice this first on an electric guitar because it will be easier. Finger Tapping lets you play things that you couldn't play using just your pick.
