Spreadable Media – Artefact 3

This is my final piece of work I will be sharing. This is also another tutorial video but this time it is my friend playing Andy McKee Drifting. This is broken into 6 parts and will teach you a section of the track at the time. Their is not explaining and the camera is kept close at all times so it capture exactly what string he is playing. All 6 parts are below.

    Hi Nabeel. I remember you were wanting to find out the name for this type of guitar technique. After doing a little bit of research I found out that it is simply called ‘Percussive Guitar’.

    Where the style originates from is a topic of debate. It is known that hitting the strings and guitar top has been a technique employed by Spanish Flamenco guitarists for many years to generate both rhythm and melody/chords for dancers to move to. The style started to appear in pop music the 1980s in the music of artists such as Michael Hedges – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YaIN13aDbCc.

    Jon Gomm is a more current percussive guitarist with a large repertoire. Here he is doing Ain’t Nobody by Chaka Kahn – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5vCcZIARw9k

    I also recommend the beautiful songs of Rodrigo y Gabriela – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tUYQMslOobw

    For anyone looking to try their hand at Percussive Guitar I recommend this tutorial: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hluWIzd92og. DaleCampbellAcoustic starts with the very basics with crystal clear instruction.

    Congratulations on finishing your artefacts. The quality of your videos is very good. May I ask how you recorded them?

      Hi Greg, first thanks and the information given is brilliant information just to know and also I am defiantly going to be sharing this information with my friend who plays it though Facebook πŸ™‚

      We used a iPhone 4s for the recording, this was mainly because my friend said get close shots of the guitar so the audience can see what sting he is playing and hitting. It’s a different style of tutorial but I have a vblog that I am going to be putting up soon have listen. It explains what’s the whole idea of that tutorial.
