You suck.

Before you lash out at me, I consider myself to be in the sucky group as well.

Here is a couple examples of how to actually BE the guitar, not just play it at parties like a goofus:


John Butler - Ocean


John Butler is one of my favorite guitarists. If you haven't heard it, enjoy. If you have, well, it never gets old.

Another fav is Andy McKee:


I also picture a few people who post here looking quite a bit like Mr. McKee. I don't know why.

Is there a purpose in strumming the strings so close to where you're fingering?

You can skip up to where the solo starts at about 5:00 if you want (but the whole song is awesome :wink: )

yes. the tension is very high and it's very easy to pick fast, plus it gives it a very tinny tone.

Not sure where you saw this, but those are two things I can think of off the top of my head.

The second video the guy strums very close to his other hand.. No matter where he moves it to.

Not to rub it in :wink:

A little caveat to this topic:



This guy is quite an excellent bassist, though not heralded like Victor Wooten, Jaco, etc. Impressive songwriting and slapping ability.

I don't even understand how to get sound that way. I try to mimic it and it sounds like every note but the right one.

those guys are obviously great, but still not nearly as good as this:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TvMrBYlwHqU

those two guys are basically tapping off open tunings, which isn't nearly as impressive as what Stanley Jordan does.
