Learn The Impossible with Mike Dawes iOS App

So I wake up one day and start to notice these peculiar fellas slapping, tapping and generally beating the shit out their guitars. What the hell is going on? They’re up there replicating a full band— there’s drums, comping, melodies all happening at the same time.  It’s beautiful. I have played in many bands and it’s a continual challenge, what if I could do it all by myself? Where do I start? Enter Mike Dawes App. He’s a star in this new percussive guitar world and also an excellent explainer of some of the fundamental techniques. I’m in, although still very far from being able to replace my band.’ – James Valentine (Maroon 5)
