Odd Techniques

Discussion in 'Technique [BG]' started by ashneldo, Dec 23, 2004.


  1. Whilst, attempting to learn victor's open hammer pluck technique a while ago I found myself doing it in a different order. Pluck, hammer, thump. Which I think is quite odd. Anyway to the point, do any of you guys/gals do a certain technique weirdly, or put your own twist on it or somthing? :)

    It's not that different but when i strum the strings i only use my middle and ring finger to do it and not my index. It looks a little wierd i think. I shouldnt have posted.

    It may not be all that odd but sometimes I like to brush the strings with my right hand when I play chords like a classic guitar player would. It's easy and makes for a cool effect.
     
  6. I used to do this alot. But then i started playing classical guitar and now i play them like a classical guitarist, i find it to be a bit more difficult this way.

    i use my middle finger to get double the notes by hitting the string around 4x faster than with 2 fingers.. :eyebrow:

    Whilst playing a hard solo or riff i can use my tounge, nose and chin to hold down frets on the fretboard. Ive actually been doing that alot recently.
