Watch the Tom-Tom online guitar lesson by Dmitry Lisenko from Percussive Acoustic Bass (Foundry)
Here we're using a rimshot snare! With a tip of your middle or index finger, hit the body of the guitar, right below the strings, and with your lower finger phalanges, you're touching muted strings. Practice this snare hit until you will get it right. It might take some time.
Tom Tom – in this example, we're using our thumb, a standard slap movement. Also, we tap with our middle finger. Starting with the upper kick, then middle finger tap, then thumb tom, kick again and then rimshot snare!
