To continue with the backing, we'll also look at the guitar percussion I used. When you listen to the song, you'll hear a bit of a drum beat going on, and that's me playing percussion on the body of the guitar. Guitar percussion can be very handy in Latin styles and beyond. It's becoming more and more popular these days as acoustic players incorporate it into their songs.

Find a good place on the bottom corner of your guitar body to do the percussion. Then watch the video and study the pattern below to develop the beat. Also, be sure to count the 16th notes out loud as you learn.
