For lack of a better way of putting it, we’ll be “stretching out” our downstrum – turning it from a typcial downstroke to something that’s more of a musical punctuation mark.
Guitar Strumming Lessons
When you’re just starting out on guitar it can seem like your hands have a mind of their own. Maybe even two minds, since you have two hands. Take heart that beginners aren’t the only ones who sometimes have trouble with strumming patterns. These lessons and podcasts help simplify the question of rhythm patterns.
We’ll take one of our earliest strumming patterns and add a bit of crosspicking to it, giving us even more choices of variations and embellishments to the original strumming pattern.
In this, our fifth GN Podcast, we’ll continue to make our playing more interesting by adding walking bass lines into our chord progression strumming.
