Watch the Hand Slaps & Slides online guitar lesson by Jennifer Batten from Rock Sauce For Lead Guitar

This technique is rhythmic only, but there's a lot of variety in rhythms that you can do. For one thing, it's useful for laying down a percussive loop like Jaco Pastorius did in his live solo spots with the band Weather Report. It can also be useful if you're in a non-drummer jam situation, especially if the sense of time of the others is questionable.
