has anyone tried this technique? I know most of u are metal heads, not country. I first saw it on a old Johnny Cash video because he couldn't afford a snare. sounds interesting. wanna learn how to do it..what frets to cover...etc.

i dont think it matters what frets its on, just wrap it round. he used a dollar bill, so try it with a five pound note, then just strum away!

I do something similar, where I wedge cards or thin picks inbetween the strings, down by the saddle. It creates a lot of overtones and very nice effect of almost more than one guitar being played.
Great technique for great sounds.

i saw a guy at a gig, he folded up a normal a4 piece of paper, then put it under the strings, over the 1st fret, sounded really cool, almost like a banjo.

but i heard cash just used ordinary paper, weaved through his strings, to make that effect, then strummed in time with the drummer for a percussive sound.

just experiment, you'll find something that suits you.
