its not really that easy or possible on guitar, on bass its pretty easy. IF you're referring to the Hendrix tricks, I thought he played with his teeth not his tounge.

RIP Les Paul, I bet he's forming a kick-ass band up there to play The Great Gig in the Sky. Maybe we'll all have to use a Stairway to Heaven to go see them play. You know I'm funny.

I don't think the tongue would have half enough power/muscle to even do it in the first place.

just hold your guitar up to your mouth and flick your tongue without making contact with the strings and just use legato

Actually your tongue is one of the strongest muscles in your body.

That guitar tomfoolery is just not my kind of taste, bud.


I see what you did there...

Although, to stay on topic, you might be able to get a really crap strum out of it. But no picking.

lol do some tongue-workouts, get some calluses on it, then it'll be just like a finger.

Hendrix did play with his tongue sort of ish. at least it looked a bit like the sound was coming from it, he'd do some quick hendrixy trills and lick his tongue in and out real fast and just looked damn cool, it's on the monterey dvd somewhere

Hendrix didn't use his tongue at all. People thought he did and so he would make it appear that he did infact use his tongue. He used his teeth to play, which is why he's known to play guitar with his teeth.

As far as I know, you can't play with your tongue. If you can, show us a video of you doing it. The strings on a guitar are far too close together and you'd most likely cut your tongue. Better yet, but if a string popped while you're trying to do it? Cut your tongue clean off.

proportionally it is, in fact, the strongest muscle in your body. its just that its so small that it can't generate as much strength as a bigger muscle. If it were the size of your leg muscles, it would definitely be the strongest muscle in the body

i bet the TS is referring to what vai does, basically a tap harmonic using his tongue to tap (just the once and he`s got the sustainer turned on). it`s on the live at the astoria dvd but can`t remember which tune.
#25
May also refer to Guitar Hero. Run Dmc "plays with his tounge" during walk this way. Dunno id he actually even plays guitar tho. Imma go try playing w/ tounge real quik. Will reply asap. unless my tongue is lopped off.
#27
Technique proven! Played clean intro to Cemetery Gates no problem, also Bulls on Parade (no solo) really easily!!! Btw, guitar strings dont taste too great and i got drool on my pickups. :P

Two words..... Steve Vai. Although he was using a sustainer and licking a different string. So it doesnt count :P
#30
LOL!

How dumb can you get mate? Why dont you trying playing some chromatic exercises on the high e with your tongue and see what happends, lol.

Stupidest thing i've ever heard.
Guitar FTW
#31
the way i'd assume most do it... a lot of distortion and a sustainer pickup... the littlest vibration and you can get any sound out of it
#32
If you do practice using your tongue, be sure to incorporate some string skipping and alternate tongue exercises. Try to use all downlicks for Master of Puppets.
#33
This is not a wind instrument forum.
If you meant teeth, then don't bother with that either, it's unoriginal now.

I'd rather not be a douche bag about it, but it's probably best you don't bother with trick moves like that.

hahahahaha when they do this they arent actually playing with their tounge. its very convincing though. what they are doing is just holding the guitar up to their face and tapping with their left hand or holding the guitar by the bridge with their plam and picking naturally

You can play with your tongue, I do it sometimes.

Just don't do it for that long or your tongue'll hurt like hell.
