This one is French, and a live session.

Wow! Fantastic - and very unconventional - stuff. As you say, nothing like that in Bert Weedon's book. :lol:

Very nice. There are two guitars playing there though.

Are you sure there are two there, Alan? He certainly seems to be using an effects pedal of some kind (judging by the echoing sound at times) but it looked to me as if he was doing all the work himself.

If you listen right at the beginning, it's most obvious. There is a second guitar strumming when he's "tapping" single notes and he's not strumming the other strings.

[Edit]Actually, having listened to it again, it could be that the strums at the first are happening just with the attack on the body of the guitar (if the action is quite low). They do sound dissonant, which could be the open strings. Maybe not then. I'll give it another listen.

I think that's what's going on, Alan - the final chord is played by him slapping on the body of the guitar and then bending the note. (I'm not sure exactly how he manages that without a tone arm; maybe a pedal again?)

The pickups and amp must be fairly sophisticated, but he doesn't look like a rich guy. To amplify the comparatively feeble soound of strings resonating to slaps on the guitar body without picking up a lot of unwanted extraneous racket must need a bit of careful filtering or choice of microphone/pickup. Think he has an acoustic pickup for the slaps as well as the usual inductive ones under the srtings? I can see one standard inductive pickup mounted in the hole - I'd guess there's something like a throat mike stuck underneath or inisde.

My first impression was that there was an accompanying guitar in the opening sequence, but on second viewing I'm convinced there's only one live player in the room, and it seems just possible thathe's not running a pre-recorded accompaniment.

Hadn't realised how widespread this kind of thing was. Google search for 'slap guitar' get over 1.8 million hits;
