Strumming Techniques 2 takes you into 16th note strumming which is a very common and very useful and cool way of strumming, especially in rock and pop. The patterns taught in this lesson are some of the most common ones played on guitar. You should have completed Strumming Techniques 1 or be confident with 8th strumming before starting these lessons.
It assumes that you understand and can confidently play your 8th note strumming patterns and you keep your hand moving when you strum. This DVD moves at a faster pace than Vol I, and as well as showing you the patterns, I explain the 16th note count, how to break down the 4 notes in each beat and then how to make up your own patterns.
It's important that you go through and make up some of your own patterns with this DVD, there are far too many 16th note strumming patterns for me to go through them all. So what we do is go through 24 of the most common patterns and explain how you can experiment with them. If you do some of your own study, it won't take long for you to hear the patterns you hear in songs and work out how to play them!
I'm sure that if you enjoyed Strumming Techniques 1 and are looking to increase your skills as a rhythm player that you are going to dig this one too!

DVD Formats explained: What is PAL and NTSC?
Although the DVD format is the same throughout the World, the video standard or electronic signal that is recorded on the DVD varies from country to country. The two most common video standards used are NTSC and PAL. This is mainly affected when playing DVDs in a player connected to a TV.
NTSC is the video system or standard used in North America and most of South America. In NTSC, 30 frames are transmitted each second. Each frame is made up of 525 individual scan lines.
PAL is the predominant video system or standard mostly used in Europe and Australasia. In PAL, 25 frames are transmitted each second. Each frame is made up of 625 individual scan lines.
