Hello everyone!

I am Sotos Bakas from Athens,Greece and I am playing fingerstyle & percussive solo acoustic guitar.
I thought to share with you my first original solo(no overdubs) acoustic guitar song.
I ll be glad to know your thoughts and to see your originals as well! : )

Very nice. While I don't use the percussive/slap technique a lot myself, I did attend a workshop given by Preston Reed years ago and got into it a bit then. Are you using relative standard tuning, but tuned lower one-half step or is it an alternate tuning?


Un-plugged is not the same as never-was-plugged-in-to-begin-with.

Hello Ombudsman!Thank you very much!!

Preston Reed is a legend!!What a masterclass!wow! :)

I am constantly using alternate tunings, only on this one you are right I used standard tuning half step lowered.

All the best wishes!Thank you for listening!!

Thank you for sharing your music. I enjoyed it. I play in three or four open or alternate tunings fairly regularly myself, but usually not with a slap/percussive technique, more often using a slide. I play in a few other tunings too, but not often.

 

Again, thanks for posting your music.

 

Take care.
