Playing Two Guitars Simultaneously

Mark Kroos returns to JamPlay with a new mini-series. Here, Mark reaches into his bag of tricks and pulls out a few gems you may be interested in. To start things off, Mark provides a lesson on how he started playing a double neck guitar. Most people don't have one, so to get started, he discusses how you can use two separate guitars to achieve the same effect.

Mark Kroos plays 2 guitar necks at the same time. Originally from Lansing, MI but currently based in Williamsburg, VA he is one of the only people in the world touring his trade. His primarily instrumental style is characterized by open harmonies, polyphonic textures, incredible tapping technique, and is as entertaining to watch as it is to listen to. Live performances burst with energy and magnetism not typical of solo guitar music. Drawing influence from folk, Celtic, indie, and even punk rock artists as well as other great guitarists such as Michael Hedges, Phil Keaggy, Tommy Emmanuel and Leo Kottke, Mark Kroos has developed his own edge to the acoustic guitar.
