Tapping Exercise Tab

I was asked to tab out my tapping exercise. I didn’t actually have it tabbed out, so I just looked at my hands in the video.

Walker's Tapping Exercise #1

The goal for me was to be able to play it just looking at a chord list.

First eight bars:

Gmaj7 Cmaj7 Gmaj7 Cmaj7 Gmaj7 Cmaj7 Gmaj7 D7

Here's how I arranged each chord:

Gmaj7
e ----------------------------------------
B ----------------------------------------
G ----------------------------------------
D -----9-12------9-12------9-12------9-12-
A 9-10------9-10------9-10------9-10------
E ----------------------------------------

Cmaj7
e ----------------------------------------
B ----------------------------------------
G ----------------------------------------
D -----9-10------9-10------9-10------9-10-
A 7-10------7-10------7-10------7-10------
E ----------------------------------------

D7
e --------------------------------------------
B --------------------------------------------
G --------------------------------------------
D -----10-12------10-12------10-12------10-12-
A 9-12-------9-12-------9-12-------9-12-------
E --------------------------------------------

Minor part: (0:22)

Am7 Em7 Am7 Em7

These are the chords for this part:

Am7
e ----------------------------------------
B ----------------------------------------
G ----------------------------------------
D -----7-10------7-10------7-10------7-10-
A 7-10------7-10------7-10------7-10------
E ----------------------------------------

Em7
e ----------------------------------------
B ----------------------------------------
G ----------------------------------------
D -----9-12------9-12------9-12------9-12-
A 7-10------7-10------7-10------7-10------
E ----------------------------------------

Back to first part, but with a secondary dominant:

Gmaj7 Cmaj7 A7 D7

Here's the only one you haven't already used:

A7
e ----------------------------------------
B ----------------------------------------
G ----------------------------------------
D -----7-11------9-12------9-12------9-12-
A 7-10------7-10------7-10------7-10------
E ----------------------------------------

Then end on G like this:

For notes in , tap and then release quickly enough that you don't mute the harmonic.
e --------------------------
B ----------------------
G -----------12---------
D ----------------------
A --------------------------
E --------------------------
*let the last note ring

Thanks.
