Finger tapping is a method of playing the guitar. To finger tap, you position your hands fairly close together somewhere on the fretboard and then use hammer ons and pull offs between the fingers of both hands to create very fast and very wide solos withinscales.

Examples of Note:

When it should be silent,
he plays rhythms on the countertop.
Thumb playing the bass;
index playing the snare.

A nervous habit, he claims.
Might be like smoking,
or safety blankets,
or other addictions.

When there is no table, he uses my back.
What started as a simple beat
has turned into a full cadence,
playing in time to my heart.
