Hi,
I was reading a biography yesterday of jimi hendrix (you know the guitar player tongue.gif )
And it stated a couple of times that he played with his tongue or teeths at various ocasions. He'd also do a lot of other tricks while playing guitar.
Of course I already knew those things. But yesterday i tried it myself.
Cut my tongue doing it (blood on the sucky strat's pickguard, shouldn't have tried it on 8's unsure.gif ) and i'm afraid of hurting my teeth.
So what i want to ask. Is there anyone here that can play (simple things) with his(her) tongue? Or any other tricks, maybe someone who knows a site with those kind of tricks and how to do them ?
Looking forward to replies tongue.gif


Oh yeah i'm not responsible for any possible fysical damage wink.gif

I've heard about Hendrix doing that, but I've never actually seen a video of him playing with his teeth from a side view. They always show him with the guitar in front of his face so you can't really see what he's doing.

If I had to take a wild guess, I'd say he's just playing legato and putting on a hell of a show in the process.

If anyone has a video of a side view, I'd love to see it though. I still can't figure out how (if?) he did that.

I used to play the hell out of my cassette of that performance in high school. That was an amazing set. This is the first time I've seen that video since I started playing guitar and what gets me the most is how huge a Strat neck feels to me and how small it looks in Jimi's hands. Eesh.
