Each Guitar Noise podcast is like a private, one-on-one lesson with David Hodge. These lessons are absolutely free and incredibly fun.
In this podcast we’ll make use of rests, combining them with simple arpeggios to create space while strumming, especially in slower songs.
This podcast gives us an introduction to some very important strumming techniques – anticipation, dynamics, and using rests as part of a strumming pattern.
Let’s wrap up our work with the traditional song, “Streets of Laredo,” one that some of you may recognize from Johnny Cash’s “American Recordings IV.”

In this podcast we’ll start with a basic “bass / strum” in 3/4 timing and then add some fancier work to both the bass and the strumming.
