I know it's just me being an old fogie but I immediately get turned off by banging, knocking, tapping and using the guitar that way. Oh ... and rapping. Whayagonnado?

I'm a somewhat old fart, but I like a certain amount of this kind of thing.  If it's good enough for Tommy Emmanuel, then I can take the time to listen now and then.

Just look away, and there is some nice stuff going on, no matter what method is being used to generate the sound.

Here in Colorado, the local wizard of this style of playing is Trace Bundy - though he's becoming more well known across the continent and the world.  Tracy mixes in a little more traditional playing, but still does use tapping/looping/hammering on quite a bit.  Ducktrapper, you might want to ignore this one:  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uprfvvMddGI

I'm 60, with 55 of those years playing guitar, and 45 of them getting paid to do so.
That makes ME an old foggie as well.

Lately, on stage, I have been playing my regular songs, and incorporating some simple tapping, instead of strumming, )on every other 4th beat for instance.)
or the first beat of a ballad.

lately, also, i seem to use a pick less and less, and get much more tonal variation from a combination of thumb strum and fingers plucking specific strings, hard to explain, but the simple chord patterns I use, sound much more complex, AND the occasional right hand slap either across the fretted strings, or on a bass run (like those funky bass players do) has brought a lot of fun and inovative ideas to this old "fart".

lets not get too caught up on how old we are, or set in our ways to miss out on being better players......

I'm good with Mississippi John Hurt, Doc Watson, Chet Atkins, Merle Travis, Marcel Dadi, Robert Johnson, Bob Dylan, Keith Richards, George Harrison, Jimi Hendrix, Pete Townshend (destroying the guitar doesn't count) and if they didn't beat on their guitars, I'm not either. Now ... all you kids get offa my lawn!

This is a disagreement between songwriters. For my part, I am referring to my influences and reference points. And, like Denis, they didn't beat on their guitars!

...at some point influences and reference points become...being stuck in the past....not a bad thing but eventually my ears like something different,,,and if it involves beating on the strings, top , and sides ...so be it. ,
