Very nice song and playing. I don't see a thumb ring, and listening closely with headphones it sounds like the tap is accentuated with a drum of some sort or other percussive device (wood block?) because the sound pitch and tone remains constant no matter where he appears to be tapping on the neck. The tap sound also moves independently from right to left and back in the stereo field. Try it yourself...the sound changes as you tap at different spots on the neck. There are piano accents as well in this track, so I am confident there is more going on in the audio than is revealed in the video.

BTW - I actually don't wear a wedding band or any other rings anymore because it wore through the finish on the underside of the neck of my favorite guitar years ago.
