Have any of you guys seen this video? I don't like the title, because I never though Van Halen invented tapping. But the video is sweet:

I know right! This guy was so innovative because I'm sure no one was doing stuff like that back then. He probably just spent a lot of time trying new stuff and just figured it out on his own.

The thing I want to know is how he was strumming chords while his right hand is tapping! Was he tapping with his left hand as well?! Was he sneaking in a strum here and there?! I swear I heard strumed chords and I couldn't see how he was doing it. Suppose he has one of those kariokee robots hidden inside his sound box? Was he finger sincing to a prerecorded rythum part, or am I going blind?


Captcha is a total pain in the........
