You just replace the current layer for the hands with a new layer, move the current hands inside that new layer, then create different hand positions as siblings to the old hands. Then create a swapset of the different hand positions with triggers to display the non-default hand positions.

You can do funky things like use the auto-blink behavior.

My attempt using swapsets can be found at the end of this blog post - scroll right down to the end: https://extra-ordinary.tv/2018/04/21/debugging-character-animator-eyess/

I found using blends for body movements works much better with music - you can control it much better than draggers. The lag for me made timing hard to get right otherwise.

I drew 3 or 4 hand positions in Illustrator/Photoshop (cannot remember how many) and attached triggers. I then just hit triggers at random in time with the music. The only tricky part was getting the arm behind the neck of the guitar and the fingers in front, but Martin probably comes with that set up already. If not, drop a line, I will dig up that puppet and see how I did it again.
