Andy McKee is one of those musicians who makes you realize that an instrument you thought you knew can be reinvented. He’s a self-taught guitarist who rose to fame on YouTube, where he uploaded popular videos of his unique playing style: He strums and plucks strings at unusual angles, he taps the frets with great dexterity, he taps the body of the instrument for a percussive effect. You have to see it to believe it. McKee, who once toured as part of Prince’s backing band, will be playing the Fox this weekend, and he’s not the only one who will be showing off the goods: Several regional guitar makers will be on hand before the concert, displaying a collection of custom-made string instruments.
