I have started learning percussive techniques on the guitar. While I can reproduce these on my teacher's guitar without issues, I can't do the same on my own guitar. My teacher recommended that I change the strings, which I did, but I still can't achieve the same effect.
What should I do? Are the strings too high up from the neck? Do I need to rechange them or is the best course of action just to take them into the shop and ask there?
EDIT: Sorry for the lack of detail – I am trying to try percussive techniques like a muted slap, similar to these:- muted slap - slapping - or the slapping thumb technique
I try these techniques on my own guitar, and the sound is nowhere near as loud and "crunchy" as my teacher's guitar, where I can make the sound ring out clearly. On my own guitar, it makes a slight noise, but it takes a ton of effort and force and I have to jam my fingers onto the strings and push very hard against the stiff strings to make any noise.
Teacher tried the techniques on my guitar and was surprised. He couldn't make the noise ring out either and suggested I change my strings. I have now, and it hasn't made a difference.
