    Seeking recommendations for cheaper (under $2k) acoustic for percussive fingerstyle / tapping style

    New 8 string piece featuring clean tapping, odd grooves and weird sounds!

    Just got a couple new pedals and was getting some cool sounds out of the them so I made a playthrough of a new song. It's very Tera Melos, TTNG, and CHON influenced with a lot of odd meter grooves. I'm pretty excited about it but please let me know what you think!

    New Mastodon is giving me the hybrid picking fever (original song)

    This is my first time writing anything in a while. I wouldn't quite call it a song rather a collection of a few riffs that, in due time, will become a full-fledged jam. The programmed drums are kinda lame but hey, I ain't no drum scientist. Let me know what you think. If you so desire, post...

    So I've been wanting to get into some multi-finger tapping lately, somewhat a la Tosin, with a right hand bassline and an LH melody part. I tried making up some random stuff just to familiarise myself with the technique, and I thought of playing -5-7-8-7-5-8-7-5-* on the low E (I haz a 6). For...
