Joe Satriani's Pick Tapping Technique Explained (Licks)

Joe Satriani's Signature Pick Tapping technique is explained alongside some of it's different applications. Specifically two different applications; 1. one that I like to call the "Quick Pick" which consists of a flurry of notes with the right hand while the positions of the left hand keep switching. 2. is more of a "normal tapping pattern" only that the notes in the right hand are played with the side of the lick instead of the fingers. The notation and tab have been provided below. Enjoy!
