Papermoon Productions : God, I love this. I love how light Sam's voice is, yet it has a rugged tone to it. Love the percussive guitar too! Well done! It was well done, I'm also impressed how well it was done for someone who is a metal singer! :) Awesome job. If I could, I'd give this 2 thumbs WAY up! *Likes*

HerroVincey : I have a question for Sam, I hope he sees this!:D My question is this: when you make your percussive guitar compositions, do you start by putting the guitar in open tuning based on one of the central chords of the song? I noticed in your "Under the Milky Way" cover that there were moments where you could strum while being simultaneously percussive with your other hand. I've always struggled to get started writing percussive stuff that wasn't in DADGAD or standard tuning. Perhaps it's all in the tuning? (I've just been nervous to do tunings that seem extreme or imbalanced.)  It also seems that tuning the bottom three strings to have a relationship of a perfect fifth and an octave can be helpful in producing left-hand tapped chords (ex. DAD, CGC.) Is this something that is helpful to you as well when you compose? I've studied a variety of tapping and percussive techniques from different percussive guitarists, but I happen to find your compositions particularly impressive because of how melodically and harmonically well-written they are! And, you SING lol! (Awesomely, might I add!) If you're reading this, I hope to see more of your percussive acoustic stuff, Sam! Keep up the sweet work!:D
