Drifting


A friend of mine sent me a link to this video of Andy Mckee on guitar. If you watch what he's doing it's pretty amazing. He's using both hands for percussion on the body of the guitar at the same time that he's using both hands to play. He's also coming over the top of the fretboard to play certain chords essentially upside down in order to get his hand in position to slap the body of guitar, using two different slap styles — heel of hand against the side of the body, and fingers against the soundboard — to produce two different tones: tick, tock, tick, tock. Nice sound, and he looks like he's having way too much fun. Thanks, Georgie.

That is amazing. The word "quadridextrous" comes to mind.
