CM Academy with Jeff Gunn Pt. 3: Exploring Percussion on Guitar

Wednesday, May 15th, 2013

The range of “hidden sounds” the guitar can produce is incredibly vast. In this video, guitarist, clinician, and author Jeff Gunn shares a lesson on “Exploring Percussion on Guitar,” based on the third installment of his series, Hidden Sounds: Discover Your Own Method on Guitar, out now via Mayfair Music.

This time out, Jeff shows guitarists how they can create percussion and accompany themselves on guitar, either with a drummer or without.

After taking up the guitar at the age of 14, Jeff has drawn inspiration from the full spectrum of musical genres including rock, classical, jazz, Eastern European, electronic, reggae, calypso, Thai, Brazilian, and African music. While completing his BFA in Music and English, along with his BEd at York University in Toronto, Jeff had the privilege of studying under such Canadian greats as Lorne Lofsky, Phil Dwyer, and Mike Murley.

During this period, Jeff played the Toronto circuit and beyond in rock bands, jazz quartets and duets, Big Bands, solo performances, and fusion groups, opening for such Canadian acts as Treble Charger and serving as the guitarist in Bulgarian fusion group Afrodisiac.

He currently performs with internationally-celebrated hip-hop artist Emmanuel Jal. For more on Jeff, visit:
