I've recently noticed that I'm very boring when it comes to acoustic guitar in standard tuning,

So I've decided to learn that percussion kind of guitar playing, ideally, like Rodrigo y Gabriela, Newton Faulkner, John Butler, you see where I'm coming from!!

Question is, how would I about learning this? Some of it seems very difficult (particularly the Rodrigo y Gabriela triplets!)

Should I learn to slap bass first or just practice solely on guitar?

Thanks

There are a bunch of youtube videos where gabriela demonstrates her technique. You have to start really slow, like everything else, but it works.

I'm sure you could find better ones if you look
