Wayne Johnson sizzles on One Guitar!

IN THE ARTIST’S WORDS ~ ~ Over the last few years I’ve been experimenting with percussive effects on the guitar. For example, hitting the guitar just behind the sound hole with the heel of the palm delivers a large drum sound. Hitting the top with my right hand fingertips gives a much higher pitched sound. My left hand fingers can fill in between right hand hits, contrapuntally, either by slapping against the strings and fingerboard or using them to perform “rolls” on the sides of the guitar. On this project, my plan was to incorporate these techniques into the performances in an improvisational manner so as to resemble interplay with a real percussionist. The challenge in playing everything in real time with no overdubs, is the physical adjustments that have to be made in order to implement these various hits, taps and slaps on different parts of the guitar, then get back to a natural playing position without creating extracurricular noise. This perplexing process ended up a great learning and creative experience. I hope you enjoy it! ~~ WJ
