I don't know anything about competitive SFEX2+ but these matches are super entertaining. There's tons of character variety, everyone seems to have sick set-ups and it's interesting to note the similarities between this and the SFIV series. Also, it has the greatest OST of any Street Fighter game, ever. Unfortunately the sound quality isn't great in this vid so you'll have to turn up your speakers.
A lot of the juggle combos are much harder than they appear because of the strict system in SFEX too. Basically normals have to hit in quick succession, otherwise the juggle opportunity disappears and normals will whiff right through the opponent. That's why you see characters immediately jumping into attacks after hitting with jabs for example. Or hitting at the last possible moment during a jump and as quickly as possible on the re-jump during juggles.
Things that are sick: Comboing multiple excels, D.Dark's ridiculous cross-ups after a knockdown and Dictator getting a full combo if he lands a back-throw with meter.

Haven't done one of these for ages but I've been working a bit more on 4x popping (plucking/snapping with all four fingers of the right hand) and wanted to put something down that featured it.
For the beginning, the stick part is just doubling the bass part. All of the pops are button hits and the rest are on the body. During the 2nd section, the stick follows a standard time rhythm with MK being the pulse, then the bass part is pushed back slightly (displaced) making MK the back beat. Then it's the end.
This isn't even about fighting games!!!
