Full Version: Guitar Rhythm (not What You Think)
GMC Forum > Discussion Boards > PRACTICE ROOM
I was thinking it would be really nice to have some guitar rhythm lessons that aren't ordinary. And what exactly I mean is establishing a rhythm by hitting the guitar above the sound hole with your hand or below it or something. Maybe you already know what I'm talking about but if you don't, here is one of many examples of an effective way of using this technique:

But there is also the technique of using your thumb to slap the low E to get a kind of percussion sound as well, check out the song called "Neon" by John Mayor.

I'm not sure if there are many others that are interested but I'd like to see at least one lesson dedicated to rhythms created that are more along the lines of percussion, but still using the guitar to achieve the rhythm!

Folk music from argentina has a regular "hitting" or use or the noises in their groove and mos of the rythm are in a combined 3/4 6/8 polirythm. Don´t know if it´s interesting.
