Polyrhythmic Acoustic Technique
Polyrhythms reside in the world of chaos, disorder, and insanity. Heres a cool piece that combines that nonsense with some nice melodies and chord changes. Very weird, very pretty. This lesson also teaches, in detail, how to perform 5:4.

Joe Satriani's Warm-Up
Here is a riff that I learned from a guy who learned it from Satriani himself. It's sort of tricky at first, but after a while you'll figure it out.

Acoustic Echo Flanger
Can't afford an acoustic multi-effects unit? This piece mimics the sound of a flanger sweeping through harmonics or partials, with some delay thrown in for good measure.
