Re: Percussive Sounds on El. Guitar
Good one, Doug. Also, try crossing two adjacent strings over each other and then plucking both. I've used this trick for years. As a poor man's ring modulator, it makes GREAT GONG SOUNDS, as well as cool a cool "chang" sound that can mimic a half-open hi-hat.

Prepared guitar. Like John Cage's prepared piano. Weave paper clips, toothpicks, guitar picks, erasers, whatever between the strings anywhere from near the bridge to near the end of the neck. Instant drums, gongs, shakers, etc. And the price is right.

Subject: Percussive Sounds on El. Guitar
I am interested to find out about technique/looping tools/effects that would allow one to produce percussive/drum-like sounds on el. guitar without having to resort to a synth guitar.
I would appreciate if someone could direct me to a resource or make any suggestions on this subject.
