Scortchin' String Skipping

Hello everyone!! welcome to my "Insane Guitar" column, thanks to Joel for inviting me on in. I though we could maybe find some really cool uses for string skipping and explore some cool tonalities and possibilities using this technique. we will start with a few simple ideas and get a little crazy!!! note: Be sure whenever you see T1 or T2 to use your middle finger to tap T1 and your ring finger to tap T2 ,.where there are normal taps be sure to use your middle finger in the case of these exercise.
