Tempting Time – Animals As Leaders

Here’s a quick transcription from the two-handed tapping arpeggiated technique used in Tempting Time, around the 3 minute mark.

The trick is getting the taps out of nowhere down between the hands. I’ve found that compression really helps with this, and based on videos I’ve seen of Tosin in action, he uses a compressor or boost for this sort of thing.

As you can see in the PDF, all of the chord tones are highlighted in the arpeggio (in blue, with chord markings above), without any sort of scalar run-down. Also, the hand and string markings are notated for each group of notes to help with breaking this down and getting it under your fingers.
