In the late 1980′s, Eddie Van Halen was asked how he became such an innovator on guitar. He replied, “Man, that’s crazy. You can drop a guitar and it makes a cool noise. Just have fun with it. Bang it, hit it, whatever.”
As a high schooler learning to play, something in me resonated with those words. So, I began to experiment, hitting my guitar, cupping my hands in different ways to get different sounds, and basically putting unsightly dings in once nice looking guitars.
As the years went by, my curiosity with the percussive nature of the guitar grew. Then, I discovered loop pedals, and my life was never the same!
