As a frequent solo guitar player, I'm always looking for ways to add more musical elements into my performance. This is a great little technique for doing just that at a very low cost and with virtually no learning curve. You can be employing this technique in just a couple of minutes!It's as simple as this: in your picking hand, slip an inexpensive 'egg shaker' percussion instrument. Now as you strum, you'll also be adding a percussive element to your playing, right in time with the song!Happy strumming!
Ben Blakesley heads upthe Marketing and Technology division of Georges Music and happily strums along to his favorite tunes (in time and out).
