The Slap

We're going to take another big step up in this unit, by introducing percussion to our fingerstyle practice. We often call this technique "the slap", as we add a literal hit to the guitar strings on the 2nd and 4th beat of the bar. We create a sort of snare drum and immediately bring the piece to life, creating the effect of more than one person playing. It's very cool, and we'll work through it gradually in the next two units.
