We have a lot of shredders and some guys who are pretty into jazz and I know I've seen some good classical on here.

But does anyone in the pit play/practice this lap tapping style? I'd love to learn but I'm pretty sure your acoustic has to have dead low action and I don't want to o that to mine.
Edit: I believe this is also similar to Andy Mckee although his guitar is in a different position.

I do a bit, but not nearly as well as Mongrain.

do you have a guitar that you use just do do it? Or does your acoustic just have super low action?

or do you just us an electric?

I prefer classical/nylon guitar playing like Rodrigo y Gabriela.
People in the pit take my post way too seriously.

Wouldn't it be easier to do it on a Chapman Stick?

I do, and its really not too hard. To start off as a beginner, tune to DADGAD, and holding the guitar normally- practice 'slapping' with the base of palm/thumb on the 12th fret harmonic (like bass slaps), until you can get harmonics sounding out of it.

Mess around with that until you feel comfortable, then lay the guitar flat and begin your adventure into laptapping. It's about 80% improv, so just mess around with it and have fun.
