So I'm taking this year and learning some new techniques, this time it's going to be the percussion side of things. It was tough for me because the bass occurs on the in between notes and sometimes in the strumming. I think I did okay with it though.

I had a lot of fun learning and playing, and I hope you enjoy it too!

EDIT: I can't figure out what to add with the youtube tags...I thought it was after the v=, but it's not working...so here's the link.

You listen to just the audio and as soon as the percussion comes in it starts to sound more than just a guitar. Nice interpretation. There's a lot of scope for percussive techniques on guitar - we have Newton Faulkner in the UK who's in that style.

You've probably checked out this one already - Andy McKee's Drifting - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BfF4QLO-L_4

There's a set of lessons on it by the man himself, too - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9hpgT-Tw_DQ

I didn't know he did lessons! Thanks!

EDIT: That wasn't a lesson....that was a performance with a bit about himself in the beginning. LOL
