Watch the Percussive Groove online guitar lesson by Daniel Champagne from Essentials: Percussive Fingerstyle

We are looking at three different percussive sounds here...

1) A kick drum made with your palm on the face above the sound hole.

2) A snare sound made with you open hand on the bottom side of the guitar.

3) A hi-hat slap with the left hand against your strings while muted

Count yourself in, start out slowly and build it up. Never hit it too hard because guitars DO break.
