Didn't this lesson appear in the magazine like 10 years ago?

Does it matter how one taps given how these intervallic patterns are structured? In other words, is it more efficient to tap with your index or middle finger? Do you tap toward the floor or ceiling? I would think this matters in order to achieve the speed and fluidity required to play these types of passages.

Umm. It doesn't really matter what finger you use. If you aren't holding a pick then the index finger might be preferred if you are the ring finger if that makes sense. Really its whatever is comfortable.Scott would play it both ways and probably tell you to learn it doing it both ways. Imo its called two handed tapping not two finger tapping so use as many fingers as you can!
