Yes, three wraps of tape with some pipe dope smeared over it.
I prefer to solder the adapter to copper pipe first, and then thread them on after they cool.
You can also solder after they are threaded on, but I've had better luck if I don't heat the fittings with tape on them.

thank you so much for the quick response.
sometimes a little re-assurance goes a long way (even if you think you already know)
great platform, thanks again
