Okay, the guitar flip. If you don’t
it up it’s super cool. You have to work up to it, up and over with the catch,
finishing move and done. Now, it goes by pretty fast, so you have to pay attention.
Don’t lean forward too much. lean a little over to the right. Square it
perpendicular to your pelvis. You’re pushing down on the top of the neck at
about the third fret. Give it a good push, and then duck away a bit before the
catch, and work in a finishing move. Yeah. Okay, now everything is looking good up
to this point right here, but your strap will be getting a lot of friction from
your armpit, and the strap will want to sag in front, making your headstock want
to smash you in your eye. So, you’ll want to make sure to duck your pretty little
face out of the way at the very end there. If you’re going to commit to the
guitar flip, you have to prep your guitar. I recommend a medium-weight Strat type
P.O.S. for starters. You have to have a heavy-duty strap, and while strap locks
are okay, I recommend concrete screws with washers on both sides of the strap.
I use a Dunlop Double D strap because they’re heavy-duty and long. If you have
a wireless, tape it to the strap. Don’t rely on the metal clip. You can do it
with a cord, I do it all the time, just make sure you’re in front of your cable.
Okay, seriously, take my advice and be careful! If your strap, or your strap pin
screw breaks, you’ll be lucky if all you get is a broken headstock. Just think of
a Telecaster flying at great velocity into someone’s face in the front row and
be careful for God’s sakes. This is Jordan: Redlight Records. Good
