Learning Guitar Strumming Patterns: Guitar Video Lessons

As I previously mentioned, I’ve been working on some guitar video lessons for you.  The first two lessons are on learning guitar strumming patterns.  If you are just beginning or learning guitar then I think you’ll find these video lessons helpful.  They are easy to apply to your guitar playing.  

In part 1 of these video lessons, I first explore the basics and foundations of strumming patterns.  I talk about setting good time.  It’s better to play a simple strumming pattern in time than to play a really fancy and complicated strumming pattern out of time!

In part 2 of the video lessons, I go on to talk about how you can add more substance or “meat” to your strumming patterns by better understanding the framework of time surrounding your strumming pattern.

Let me know what you think! Sorry for the loud birds in the background! It was a beautiful spring day.
