Nice tune and very well done. I used to do a couple of percussive "slap-tap" tunes a number of years ago after attending a workshop with Preston Reed. Very impressive stuff for an audience. I got out of it pretty much because it required using another separate guitar set up for it and more electronics, etc than any of the other tunes I did which were almost all straight fingerstyle "guitar to mic" and it was a lot to go through just for one or two pieces in a night.

 

But your tune was very well done.

I enjoyed that! I have a desire to learn how to play like that, I am a big fan of Kaki King.

Other artists who play in that style might be Michael Hedges (who orinated the style) and Preston Reed, who's probably the best at it still alive.

 

Years ago back in the 90's I went to a guitar workshop with Preston Reed and learned the style and added a couple of his tunes to my set-list. They're pretty impressive sounding to an audience, but not extremely difficult. However I eventually got out of doing them because in addition to the necessary different tunings used, they required a lot of additional electronics and since I played mostly "clean" guitar-to-mic tunes it got to be too much trouble for just a tune or two.

 

It's impressive sounding stuff and an audience seems to really like a tune or two using the technique, but to be honest, sitting and listening through a complete forty-five minute set or an entire album of it gets pretty boring after a few tunes!

By percussive fingerpicking (as opposed to percussive fingerstyle) do you mean for example string-snaps such as those used sometimes by say old acoustic bluesmen like Charlie Patton or Tommy Johnson, etc?
