    hope u have powertab...

    here is a little one: starts with a Amajor arpeggio and has the b7 and the root tapped at 15th and 17 th fret. the same back down again.
    to make it even i finished with a few notes of A mixolydian (D major).


    what you can try is to NOT SWEEP on the way back down!
    try to play it like all hammer ons from nowhere!
    let me know how that works out for u.

    there are some cool sweeping/tapping licks on michael angelo's "speed lives" (new version of "speed kills" video)
    i dont have the transcription of it, but there are some cool close ups of his hands on the promotional video
    you might be interested in buying the dvd actually, it focuses on alot of the techniques that you seem to be interested in.

    edit: p.s. the lick starts about 1:52 into the video

    Thanks ALOT phantom, thanks wild. Im not too much on music theory (its the little demon poking me in the *** with the spork telling me i need to learn it) but i feel i would understand it much better if i had someone teach me it so im working on getting a good guitar player that lives nearby to show me. thanks again!

    The intro tapping to Van Halen's "Hot For Teacher" is a repetitive one, and might be a good learning (and stretching!) exercise. It requires 2 fingers from your left hand, and 1 finger from your right. Give it a try.
