notation VS tab
TAB is OK for novices, but sometimes it is hard to distinguish the right rhythmic patterns with this form of notation. If anyone reading this cannot read standard notation fluently, I strongly suggest you learn. Wimps and wussies need not apply, it will be difficult to learn if you can't put in at least 30 min - 1 hour a day. Also,as was said earlier, STOP TAPPING WITH YOUR INDEX FINGER PEOPLE!! It is much more efficient to tap with your middle and ring (and even pinky) fingers because you don't have to change the way you're holding the pick. I am posting this because it took me fifteen years of trial and error to figure out these common sense concepts, so maybe I can save someone the trouble. It really isn't a matter of "preference" which finger you tap with. It's a matter of whether or not you want to limit your own possibilities, and tapping with only the index finger certainly limits what one can do.
