This lesson will show you the basic guitar strumming. Strumming is a vital & basic skill for guitarists. It can be the rhythmic engine of a song.
Strumming is the ‘brushing’ or ‘scratching’ of the strings in large strokes. Like a pendulum, the hand continues to move (up & down rather than side to side), always keeping time.
Many players fall into the ‘pick and grin’ category where they prefer to just strumming chords and singing along to a basic arraignment. They’ll completely forego the tabs! That’s okay, because sometimes all you need is basic guitar strumming patterns as presented in this lesson.
