Lesson Six - Strumming Chords
This Lesson is about putting a cool strumming pattern behind your chord. Call it a "groove." You will also work on what I like to call the "Campfire" approach to playing songs. Keep the following in mind when working through this Lesson:
- Six strumming patterns are given at the beginning of this lesson (three 4/4 patterns and three 3/4 patterns). They are all good, but the best ones are the third and fifth patterns. I call them the "all purpose 4/4 strum" and the "all purpose 3/4 strum."
- "All Purpose" Four - Four Strumming Pattern
- "All-Purpose" Three - Four Strumming Pattern
