I get a lot of emails asking questions like :
- “I play classical guitar and I find it hard to play with a thumbipck.”
- “I studied classical guitar for years and I just can’t get the groove right.”
A great classical guitar technique is a thing of beauty – and I worked on it
a long time.
However, for “African” based music, you need an entirely different “touch”. The “groove” is built into the “touch”. You can’t separate the two.
