Say do you guys know of any places where I can learn about using the guitar as a rudimentery drum?

Like in this video. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2DctCyO-E3s

Yeah, hit the guitar with your hand/fingers hard enough to make noise. Did you really expect to find an instructional video about how to hit something?
Suhr Custom, Flaxwood Rautia or Grosh Tele thru
HBE Medicine Bawl Wah
Analogman BiComp
Texas Two Step OD
Fulltone Ultimate Octave/Fuzz
Boss CE-2
TC Nova Delay
SLO-100, 65 London or Bogner Shiva
Ask me about any of this stuff!

I play Mellencamp's "Jack and Diane" and tap on the guitar to simulate the hand claps in the intro. It's just a feel thing. I probably couldn't do it for a song any more complicated though.

A lot of Andy McKee stuff has percussive guitar hits.

The songs are really difficult though, if you even manage to find tabs free.

Lots of flamenco music involves hitting the guitar.
I didn't really watch the entire video, but if you're talking about the noise in the intro, that's just him plucking muted strings... I think.
Signature? What's a signature?

It's true. You get a brighter noise if you slap against the neck/side area, and it gets lower as you go down the sides of the guitar. If you slap the top, you obviously get either a slightly treble or slightly bass tone depending on which side of the top that you slap. The neck doesn't make much noise, but the heel'd be alright if you were to quickly drum it with your fingers.

Hope that's a start.
