Got a problem with your rhythm playing and strumming? You're not alone, it's the biggest struggle for most guitar players! So this DVD takes you through the essential strumming patterns in an easy and fun way!
Once you "get it" it feels great and having solid rhythm skills makes playing even simple songs sound great! I would really recommend getting this DVD as well as the Beginner Course if you want to develop this core skill quickly and well.This DVD starts at an absolute beginner level and focuses on basic eighth note strumming patterns and continuous hand movement. It then develops the use of ties, picking out the bass note of a chord and the use of the muted strum as a percussive device - along with a whole lot of handy hints to help you get your rhythm guitar techniques solid. It finishes with a brief look at sixteenth note strumming and it's applications.
There are 20 patterns studied during the DVD, each one fully explained and then played over and over again for you to play along with, and make sure you get in the groove and get it right!
I think this is one of the best DVDs I have made to date and will be a really big help for anyone struggling to get their rhythm playing consistent and confident.
