    hold your guitar as if you were tapping
    so that your left pinky is next to your right pointer

    L/R1 - left/Right pointer
    L/R2 - middle finger
    L/R3 - ring finger
    L/R4 - pinky

    so on the same string
    L1 held down the whole time
    then
    R1
    L2
    R2
    L3
    R3
    L4

    and just keep going
    R1
    L2
    R2
    L3
    R3
    L4

    i dunno moving up and down the string w/e you want.

    ya if someone can play this i would love to hear it.

    ya i know this is going to sound fing retarded but while i was watching tv i was playing around with my rock band guitar and was doing that sequence pretty fast, and on the beat.

    o btw i know nothing about guitar, i play drums, so if this is a common tapping w/e.

    I'll give it a try on my guitar tomorrow, if I could figure out WTH you mean with the code you made up.

    That code for each note is a bit confusing. Any way you could put in a tab?

    I'll give it a whirl if I can understand it a bit more fluently...

    Hmm normally you would only tap with one finger, moving across the frets, instead of using a different finger for each fret (unless you're this guy). I'm a bit confused because the first thing you do (the slow part) is different from the part where you play faster. I'll give it a try when I get home, but it probably sounds better on your guitar... er, plastic thingy :D
