Eddie Van Halen did not invent tapping. He simply redescovered it.

Circa 1965

The second song he does, is amazing.

I wish I knew this artist's name.

1. Vittorio Camardese

A couple of years ago I came across a street musician that did 'tapping' but it sounded more like a touch guitar. It was an acoustic w/pickup plugged into a small portable amp that he also used as a chair. The guy was amazing. This Vittorio dude is pretty amazing as well. Thanks for sharing.

4. You Thought Eddie Invented It

I thought it quite well known that he popularized it, not invented it.
