1. Overview - Guitar Strumming: my name's check Millar and I've created this course specifically for the person who hasn't done a lot of strumming. They might know a couple chords or they don't know any chords. And we bring that person all the way from the beginning, using really simple strumming patterns, two men graduating them to doing intermediate strumming patterns. And we use a lot of different Shriners of music. We don't focus on just a strumming pattern, but we get to play it with musicians in real time. In this course, once you get through that intermediate level, then I have a host of advanced strumming patterns for us so that weaken make our guitar sound like a drum and add percussive effects to it. Then we continue on into really, really advanced type of strumming patterns. It should be everything that you need to know to get yourself from somebody who's just starting as a guitar player to the end, where you're playing really, really advanced stuff that you can play on stage, that you could play in a band that you can play professionally. So if you're ready to start learning some strumming patterns than let's get started, 2. Introduction - Guitar Strumming: Hi, My name's truck Millar, and I'll be your instructor to this master strumming course. 3. How to Get a Good Sounding Strum - Step 1 - Guitar Strumming: The first step to having a good sounding strum is to hold our pick correctly, and we're going to hold her hand in a loose fist. So this is a closed fist, knows there's no light L on the other side of the fist, but I'm gonna open it up so that you can see some light going through that fist so it's relaxed, said. It's open just a little bit like your curling your fingers around, and then your thumb just comes by and touches the index finger. The next step is you're going to get this thumb down just a little bit. So it was kind of touching the side of your finger like you're pinching something. And now it's coming down just a little bit at an angle, and now your index finger is also going to come down just a little bit to match it. And now, when we have that instead of coming up, it's the index finger jettison down a little bit more than the rest of the fingers, and the thumb simply just comes down to magic. Once I have my hand in the proper position and from this side it looks like this from the side. It looks like this. Once you have your hand in the proper position and you have that loose fist with the fingers coming down and the index finger coming down, the pick is going to be placed in the fingers pointing towards the ground, and one is pointed towards the ground. It's in the right position, so when we curl our fingers around, it's going to be pointed directly towards our guitar. So take some time. Practice holding your pick the right way. Make sure that when your pick finally gets to your guitar in your palm faces towards your strings, it's not pointed up in the air. It's not pointed down to the ground. It's not twisted or tilted it anyway, but it's simply getting that pick very straight onto the strings but holding it with your fingers. So that's our first step. Once we get through that first deputy, feel comfortable with it. We'll see you in the next lesson. 4. How to get rid of Pick Recoil - Guitar Strumming: Now that we know how to holder pick correctly, we're gonna do some basic things to be able to make some changes to that pick. First things first, though. We're making sure that our pick is faced directly towards strings directly towards the strings. And after we get that done, we're going to make sure that our pick is not tilted down. So it's not down. And it's also not up these air Some very common mistakes that people use when they start to strum. And they get into these habits because they have some immediate success with some of bad habits. Again, one of those bad habits is taking that pick and let it letting it tilt downwards so the pick slides easily through the strings. However, this gets to be a problem when we started doing up and the pitch gets caught underneath the strings. So there's ways to Romiti that also we're going to caution ourselves so that we don't have our pick do the lean down thing and lean up thing, and this is very common with beginners to we're also we're going to want to make sure that our wrist does not have any turning motion, except we're going tohave our hand flat so that the palm is faced as the same angle of the strings and you grab your pick and the palm still face towards the strings. So there's really, really no movement of the pick. There's no movement of the risk. There's no movement of the arm from the elbow, is just simply holding onto the string. Any motion from the wrist is going to come on, Lee, by the chance that our rece is loose and our whole motion from the elbow as I strum is going to move up and down on Lee because it has forced from the elbow to do so and then down from the elbow to do so. It's is loose, as if you're shaking out a rag. Just loosen, just allowed to move. One of the things that we're also going to think about one we're playing our strumming is that we're not going to make what we call an a frame with our wrist, so that looks like this are wrist is gonna be nice and straight instead of that a frame, and it's very common for beginners to make this mistake, so flatten out that risk, trying to get your arm from the elbow all the way through your wrist and your fingers to be a nice straight line. Some other things to think about is when we're holding our pick. We can either have a lot of pick showing or a little bit of pic showing. Now there's some advantages to both. There's also holding your pick in the middle so that your index finger relates toe where the tip of the pick is, and other effects where you're holding the side of the pick were. Now you have two points that index point and then the pick up point. So now they're one point ones right over the other, and then the other one is moved over to the side so you can tell that the pick is a little bit lower than what my index finger is. And I'll describe what these different sounds sound like. I'm going to just use this d chord, and the pick that I'm going to use first is ah, pick where I have a whole lot of pic showing some things that we're going to hear and I want you to listen for is the noise of the pick here through strings. If I want to have my guitar sound like it has a lot of presence and I want to hear those ticks, I will hold my pick in that manner if I want to remove that tiki sound from my guitar. And I don't wanna have that present sounding guitar and I want to remove any pick noise. What's gonna happen is we're gonna take that pick and we're going to barely have any PIC showing. And there it is. So you can kind of see there's only just a smidgen of pic showing now what happens when you play that it's going to sound very fluid. But in order for your pick not to pop off the string with a term we call pick request recoil from the strings that that bouncing motion that spring Roshan is called pick recoil . So in order for us not to have that pic recoil sound, we have to be able to make our fingers very flexible. Were barely holding on to the pick at this point, and you're going to feel like you're almost going to drop it at any time now. Uh, it takes a lot of practice to be able to hold your pick and not let it move or rotate in your fingers when that happens. But what you're going to do is you're gonna take your middle finger and touch just this side of the pick. So I have my fingers. I'm barely showing any pick. And then that edge of the pick right there touches this finger and that will help it to not rotate in your fingers. And this is what it sounds like versus having out way. The other version of holding your pick is having your pick out to the side where I have the point of my finger coming down. And then I have the pick the point of the pit coming down, and this allows this pick to flex. I'm going to get a fair amount of pick noise again, but it's a great way for some of us to be ableto get the pick through the strings when were first starting out in the cells like this. Ah, any one of these pick holds is gonna be okay. The main thing that we have to take away with each one of these picks is that when we move through the string, our fingers have to be soft enough. So they're not squeezing down on the pick so that the pick is allowed to move in the fingers, right? It's not so tight that it doesn't move back and forth, so my finger here is pretending that it's hitting a string, and now the pick is allowed to flex, and when it comes up and hits the string again, it's allowed to flex again. That only happens if you're your fingers are not squeezing that string. So practice holding your pick in these different picked formations and simply tried to strum a couple times using open strings. And when you're ready and you feel comfortable holding that pick, see you in the next lesson. 5. Finding the Proper Pick Depth - Guitar Strumming: in this lesson, we're gonna discover how pick depth relates toe having a good sounding strum. Now, pick depth means how far your pick gets inside the strings. If we have zero picked up and we choose a miscellaneous cord, what's gonna happen is that I'm going to strung up and down and you won't hear any thing ring out because the pick isn't touching the strings. I have zero pick depth, what we want to be able to do and you can choose any corn that you want to. Um, we're going to be discussing some chords later in this course, but for right now, we're gonna be using a G chord and let me teach it. Teach Chris quick, just in case you don't know it. Our pinky is going to be on the third fret of the first string, and it comes up and touches the front not on top of the front, not in front of the front, but behind the front and touches it. So the third fret of the first train, it's a pinky. And then my ring finger goes on the third front of the second string and now I can't touch that fret because my pinkies, in a way, but it comes up and touches the pinky. My middle finger comes up all the way and touches the sixths string just for a proper form . We're making sure that our our finger right here touches the guitar. And when we curl our fingers around, we're going to make sure that a wrist doesn't come down. Our wrist is gonna be nice and straight here is gonna be nice and straight. So no moving of the wrist whatsoever and were playing that G chord and is the pinky the ring. And now this middle finger comes up to the third fret of the sixth string's Everything really isn't 1/3 fret. What were really thinking about is trying to mute the fifth string, but we're pressing down with all the rest of our fingers on. We're getting a good sound out of each of the tones. If you have to take some time and figure out how to play this chord. Um, getting usedto pressing with all over the fingers cause sometimes and we're beginning, we think about pressing down maybe that middle finger and then these guys come up or and then you get some dead tones down here. Sometimes you take you these guys like while I'm getting a dead tone, some pressing down over here. And then that middle finger comes up. And now that's dead. So making sure that you pressing down with all of the fingers all at once and then we'll get a good sounding chord. So when we're discussing this idea of no pit depth, we're not really having any strumming pattern per se. We're just doing strums strong straight up, all the way through the strings down. Eventually, if you finally get your hand close enough to the strings and a little closer and a little closer and a little closer, you're eventually going toe hit thes strings, but just a little bit. And as soon as you hit those strings just a little bit stopped coming into your guitar, E a t. This point, your pick is just riding across the top of the strings. If we would have continued to get our pick a little farther closer to the strings and little farther close for the strings are pick would have developed pick depth problems where we had that term that we use before called pick recoil. So it's moving in, moving in, and I'm finally touching the strings. I'm gonna press a little harder a little further in, and you could tell what happens is the pick kind of pops off the strings way, and we want to avoid that. If that ever happens and you find yourself really hearing those harsh tones out of your guitar, simply get the pick away from the strings and slowly get it in till you're just barely riding right across the tops of the strings on. And that's where we want to be. So again, this lesson we covered proper pick depth practice. That G chord is in new court for us, and we're just strumming straight up and down. No big deal. We're just trying to get the proper pit depth for our new strums that were about to learn a little bit later. If you're going to apply Accord to, it is just going to be that geek or that we learned and it's straight strums all the way down some things to think about when we're doing that. Down, up, down, up, strum. We're making sure that our pick goes pretty far away from the strings a couple inches or so on either side. Notice how it clears the string a couple inches and I'm going to try to use an arc. So I'm not just going straight through the strings on the edges. My on the edges of my pick. It's gonna come out like this, so it's gonna come up, and as I do a downstream that's gonna go out in a way out in a way out in a way, and this is what it looks like out in a way, I'm over exaggerating out in a way out in the lane we're trying to avoid is the natural reaction to let our pick drop and hit the tar. That's pretty pretty natural for us to want be able to dio. So to correct it right away we start having a arc pattern. But for us, we're just going toe about two inches away from the strings. We're gonna try to hit every single string on the way. All right, spend some time working with your proper pick depth, and we'll see you in the next lesson. 6. Playing with Ease - Using your pick at just the right angle - Guitar Strumming: in this lesson, we're gonna learn how to greatly reduce pick recoil by using a new trick. This little trick is a way for us to be able to kind of get past some of those beginner, clunky stuff right away. By taking the pic, we're gonna take this pick and it was flat. Remember that Our Palmas Flat, our pick is in her fingers were trying to hold it with one of those three different ways And then this pick now and I'm gonna move it up here so you can see. But yours is gonna be down here. You're either going to move it 100% straight up and down by moving your hand and your thumb counterclockwise. So it's flat right now. It's not tilted, it's not Tilted was flat. The point is pointed towards your guitars. That's not tilted. So now we're going to move it like you're using a screw in a screwdriver and it's just twisting. So we're twisting that straight up or if it's more comfortable for you to do so, which most people are pointing it straight down. So either straight up or straight down, there are some of us in the world that have a really flexible thumb. And for those people, it might be easier to get your pick straight up. For most people in the world getting your pick straight down, and it will be uncomfortable for your rest. Just know that it's not going to stay that way for a lot. And if you're a down person, that's no no big deal. But just know that, um, I'm a person because of that thumb, and that's how you're going to see it. So when we're thinking about getting our picks straight up and down, whether it's down or up, we're going to just take that G chord that we learned. And we're going to strum straight down with that up pick, and we hear a couple things with that. First of all, we don't hear any real big strum like me normally, what with and since we're not really getting a good sound, we are getting something that is good, and that's something that is good. Is that pickets sliding through the strings without any pick recoil? It just simply just loathe. It is almost impossible at that point to have any clunky notes because it just floats so easy to the strings. Now, how does this help us? Right, So what we're going to do is whether you're going from a down and slowly bring it back up. So to see the angle of the bigs, if it's down and slowly bring it back up the flat or if it's from the top and slowly bring it down for me, I guess I'm gonna be up. So whichever way you do, it's gonna be fine. So I'm gonna go straight up and down, and then I'm gonna this just move it to the strings and eventually I'm slowly, slowly, slowly the slowest I possibly can turn that. And this is what it's gonna sound like if we do this exercise. So listen to first slowly getting the pick to turn and noticed you can actually start to hear a little bit of a strum. Want to go back to flat and see how it went away that strum so and I want to go a little bit further and now we're hearing that strum really well. And at this point, my pick is about a 45 degree angle from this way to the through the strings. I'm gonna go from the top and go even further to see what that sounds like. Here's that 45 degree angle and I'm gonna go. But a little further closer to flatten Does he have a big fat tones with flat pick for Some of us were gonna have a little bit of trouble having our pick flat and it not having that pick recoil. If you're one of those people and you're having your kind of pop off those strings, you can always take your pick and move it at about a 45 degree angle, either down or up, depending on what's comfortable to you. And you're gonna be ableto have that smooth sounding pick. So at that 45 degree angle, you can use that G chord and strum Get that nice, clean, silky smooth tone and it flows through the strings and you still get a good tone. If I was to put mawr pressure on the string, you'll hear the difference in what happened. So I'm just gonna put a little bit more pressure on my pick and have a little bit more pick depth. So I'm gonna have my pick nice and straight up and down, and you still kind of hear a little bit of a strong. But you kind of hear a slide to the strings, and I'm slowly going to get through the strings on. Here's that 45 degree angle ongoing flat on. That's when we run into that pick Rico or problem. So to solve that for most folks, especially the beginners out there, we're gonna take that pick if you need it, and we're gonna move it at that 45 degree angle or down at that 45 degree angle. Practice with that technique. Start all the way up, go to flat or start from a down and then go all the way to flat. Next. Start all the way up and go to a 45 and see what that sounds like or go from flatten and go to a 45. Try that along with your G chord or whatever cord that you know how to do. We'll see you in the next lesson 7. G Chord - Guitar Strumming: in this lesson, we're gonna be learning some basic chord shapes in orderto move along into strumming patterns. We would have to be able to know some certain chords, and there's going to be some of us who don't know our cords quite yet, and that's the reason why they're here. Also, for those of us who know different versions of these cords, these versions of the cords that I'm gonna teach you may be new. C might wanna learn some new chords Worse. Review some course. If you're really adept at seeing somebody's fingers for the first time in mimicking where their fingers are and being able to play chords right along with somebody for the first time or very quickly, you may want to skip this section, but it's always a good review. There's always on the bottom left hand part of your screen. You can always speed up these sections for quick review or to learn something very quickly if you already have a lot of cord theory chords that you know how to do. All right, let's get started. We're first going to start with that G chord in this course. We're going to use a lot of this particular chord and the corn we're gonna uses a g chord where I have my pinky On the third fret of the first stream My ring finger on the third fret of the second string and it comes up and touches the pinky My pinkies all the way up to the front Not on top of the front and not in front of the front but behind the front and touching my third finger Touches my pinky and my middle finger comes up and tries to if you can touch the sixths string third fret And if you're having a too hard of a time reaching and it comes about here no big deal just maybe a little buzzy over time try to reach up and touch that front We're gonna strum from the sixths. String down basic chord shape Geen Note that the fifth string is muted and should be muted . So that means we shouldn't curl around this finger so much that that a string rings out. We wanted to be more flattened so that the a string but the fifth string is muted. All right, practice your G chord and we'll see you in the next lesson 8. C Chord - Guitar Strumming: our next chord that we're gonna learn is a c chord. And really that seek or that we're gonna learn is a variation of the geek or that we've just learned The G chord that we've just learned is the pinky on the third front, their finger on the third fret second finger on the third prep of the six 2nd 1st way Learn this in the last lesson. Theo Onley difference between my geek or this is a G tone is I'm gonna take this middle finger and move it once said of strings. Down to Now reside on my see tone, the fifth string third fret. So it was here for a G chord, and now it's going to be down here for a C chord. Given my this is only one version of a secret, there's many But this is the secret that were learned right now, and we're going to strum from the fifth string down. Alright, that makes it easy. When I played the C chord to be able to go back and forth from G. Jean, then to see Gene and to see now keep in mind just like my G chord where my fifth string was muted. Now my fourth string is now muted, so there's R C court. All right, practice your C court and we'll see you in the next lesson. 9. D Chord - Guitar Strumming: in this lesson, we're gonna be learning some variations of the D chord. All right, we're going to start learning a simple version of our dick Ord or I play my third finger on the third front of the second string. So if we don't know our fingers quite yet, it's 1234 Just like kid math and thumb doesn't get it number. So when I play my third finger on the third friend of my second string, I'm also gonna play my index finger on my second fret of my third string. Notice that my fingers don't have any spaces in between the fronts I'm gonna. And if they do, I'm going to sink them up and touch the France Never on top of the fronts number in front of the fronts but behind and still touching. What I'm gonna do is I want to take the fourth string and I'm going to strum it all the way down. Oh, I'm gonna concede that some of us may not know our string names. So this is the first string second string, third string, fourth string, fifth room and six string. I'll be referring them to the first strings. Second string, third string, fourth string, fifth string and six string. Throughout this course, there's going to be times when I name strings, but it's not gonna be quite as important as knowing the simple version. 123456 where the six has the biggest drink and the first has the little a string. So I have my second string third finger, third string first finger and I'm strumming from the fourth string down Things is a d sess two chord because I have a e tone it and it's a little simpler than playing Ah, full dick ord and we're gonna learn the full dick. Or did we still have these two fingers down? Except I'm going to use my middle finger in Play it on the second front of the first string and I still have my other fingers in motion and I play it from the fourth string down on. That's a full D chord. Sometimes we just want to have the G sound come out but mawr over. We want to be able to play a quick D, and it helps us for those folks who are having trouble playing their cords fast, and also this is a typical country or bluegrass sounding discord. And it looks like this. I still have the two notes that I had my index finger in the second front of the third string, my third finger in the third front of the second string, and now my pinky now resides on this third front of the first string. And it sounds very similar to the D that we played before with two fingers except Nam, including my thinking on the reason why this is more important is that when I use my G chord on, then my C chord, the Onley moving one finger to be able to play a D chord now and then I could move freely, Onley changing chords with one finger at a time. And remember the G chord Stearns at the six string fifth string for the C fourth string for the D chord. So in recap, we have our regular old simple dick ord DSS to court the full D looks like a triangle on Do we have a d suss six chord all rights from your D chord with just simple down strums or down up strums. And once you feel comfortable fling, you are different versions of your D chord. We'll see you in the next lesson 10. Country G Chord - Guitar Strumming: in previous lessons. We've learned this G cordoned. It doesn't have a three tone in it, so it makes it really nice to be able to sing with because you're not competing for that three tone. What we're gonna learn right now is what's called a country Gee, corn, because it's very typical in country music to play the first finger that we're gonna play is a pinky, but it's going to go on the third front of the first string. The next finger that we're going to use is a second finger, but it's going to go on the fifth string. Second friend. So Pinky, second friend, first string, fifth string. Then our third finger is going to reach up to the six string Third fret. So I have pinky third friend, first string, middle finger, second fret of the fifth string and and then I have my G tone, which is that third fret of the sixth string, and I'm simply going to strip all my strings. All right, now that we know our country G chord, I spent some time practicing with it. Get comfortable with it, and when you're ready, we'll see you in the next lesson. 11. Country C Chord - Guitar Strumming: in this lesson, we're going to be learning something called a country. See Corn and it's are typically our first C chord that we actually learn. My first note that I wouldn't play is a C tone. That's the first finger on the first fret of the second string. Then my middle finger or second finger is going to go in the second front of the fourth string, and then my third finger is going to go up to this third fret of the fifth string. Now it's one of these chords that I have to curl this finger up and over that first ring or else the E string is gonna mute out, so have to curl it over so it rings out. So again, this is my first finger. On the first fret of the second string, my second finger goes on the second fret of the fourth string. My third finger goes on the third fret of the fifth string, and I strum from the fifth string down. Here's some reasons why we might play this scene versus this. See, they sound a little different, and here's some common use cases for them. If I'm playing out of the key of G and, um, I'm using see as my four chord or the fourth scale degree or just a chord and the Key of Jean if we don't understand what that means, and it is very likely I'm gonna end up using this cord are seek war that we've previously learned. But if I'm in the key of C, it's very difficult to get a good sound out of this seek or that we've learned previously. So in the case of like a country song and you have to forgive my voice because his way too high, it will sound little squeaky. But if I sing Old Country song, um, and it's gonna be like, this way if I use the C court and I try to sing the same song whole Hey looking, it doesn't really sound the same or give it the same flavor as the C chord that we're learning now. So again, my first finger is in this first front of the second string. The second finger is in the second fret of the fourth string, and my third finger is in the third fret of the fifth string, and we strum from the fifth string down. All right, Spend some time practicing with your new country, See Court and was a you in the next lesson. 12. Em Chord - Guitar Strumming: in this lesson, we're gonna be learning the e minor chord. All right? We're gonna be starting with our index finger on the second fret of the fifth string and the middle finger on the second fret of the fourth string where the middle finger is touching the front and our index finger is touching the middle finger and we're gonna strum all the way down from the six string to the bottom. Ah, variation of how to play this e minor is to use one finger or the second finger using both frets. So you have to be able to get the finger in the middle of the front to be able to achieve this and have it all the way up to the front. So you're getting both of these tones just like you were with two fingers, but with one finger or sometimes I'll do it with the second finger as well. Some other variations that will do is if we're playing out of G on. Remember we took this G court in. We only moved one finger at a time to move to the C chord one finger at a time to move to the D chord in this case, I'm gonna take my index finger and use that e minor using both of these notes. The second fret of the fifth string, the second fret of the fourth string and still keeping these other two fingers down the ring. Viniar and the pinky just is if I was playing G. Except I'm using this finger now and playing the even A becomes on e minor to cord. Here's an example of using that e minor as e minor suss to way. All right, practice your e minor chord and when you're ready, we'll see you in the next lesson. 13. A Chord - Guitar Strumming: we just got done learning the e minor chord. Now we're gonna play a very similar corn, but a major called the a major court just like the e minor chord that used two fingers. We're gonna take dese two fingers that are close together and I'm going to move them one set of strings down where I had the e minor. I'm gonna move my a one set of strings down So I have my index finger on the second front of the fourth string in my middle finger on the second fret of the third string where my middle finger reaches up and touches the front and my index finger touches my middle finger . And if I played on Lee, these notes from the five string down it's an A major suss to cord. A CSTO we're gonna do is we're gonna use one more note and we're gonna take this finger and pull it back so that we give enough space to add our third finger and we're gonna have a completely a major chord where we're gonna have our first finger now is gonna be in control of the ah, second fret of the fourth string middle finger is now in control of the second front of the third string, and now my ring finger is going to be in control of the second front of the second string, and I'm still going to strum from the fifth string down. Now when you're learning this, A. If this feels uncomfortable to you and you want to use different fingers and different positions is long is you get on a using the second front. Second fret. Second fret. If you find something that's more comfortable for you and your fingers go forward and there's there's no set rule on what fingers to be able to use for an accord as long as you use the second front, second front or second fret of the fourth string third string on second Street. What I like to do as a shortcut for my accord is take my middle finger and place it on the second fret of the second string, and now my index finger is in charge of covering both strings, the fourth string and the third string, and we barred it. We get got the finger just a little bit flat and replace it right in the middle of the two strings so that we can end up using two fingers much like we did the e minor chord. We're just going to use that same feature for the A major chord. As always, we're going to strum from the fifth string down for an accord because this is an A note. All right, now that we know are a major chord, take a moment to practice that when you ready, we'll see you in the next lesson. 14. E Chord - Guitar Strumming: in this lesson, we're going to be going back to e core. Except that won't be e minor. It'll be e major. We're going to start out using our second finger on the second fret of the fifth string, followed by our ring finger will go on the second fret of the fourth string. Then our index finger is gonna go on the first fret of the third string. So one second finger goes on the second fret of the fifth string. Third finger goes on the second fret of the fourth string, and I strum from the sixth string down. 15. Am Chord - Guitar Strumming: we just got done learning r e major chord on We're gonna use this familiar shape and learn an a minor chord Now that we know are e major chord we're gonna do is we're gonna take these notes that we have the same shape exactly as it is and move it One set of strings down So where it was one set of strings up for E major chord I'm gonna move all of the fingers one set of strings down And then I'm going to strong from this fifth string down and he's gonna become an a minor chord. Let's talk this out. I have my index finger on this first fret of the second string My middle finger on the second fret of the fourth string and my third finger on the second fret of the third string , strumming from the fifth string down strumming from the fifth string because this is my a string open. All right, spend some time getting to know your aim. Minor chord. And when you're ready, we'll see you in the next lesson. 16. Bm Chord - Guitar Strumming: in this lesson, we're gonna fuse a familiar shape of a minor that we just learned, and we're gonna move on and play a simple version of a B minor. We just got done learning an a minor chord and we're gonna take this shape as it is and move it. One, two frets up. I'm gonna use this and play from my fifth string down Here was the a minor on. Here's to be minor. Here's an example. So even though we're not playing a full B minor quite yet, it still sounds neat because we have the a tone in it. So that means it's a B minor. It's with us to suspension in it with a suspension inversion. We don't need to know what that means yet just that it's a two suspension. So be miners. Us, too. One way we can do this if we're going toe, think about playing a full B minor chord is we're going to take these same notes, which is the first finger on the third front of the second string, the second finger on the fourth fret of the fourth string and then the third finger on the fourth front of the third string on. I'm just going to switch these fingers, so I'm gonna replace my index finger with my second finger. And now I have these two fingers available above it My ring finger and my pinky. So now we're my second finger is on the third fret of my second string. My ring finger is now going to be on the fourth fret of the fourth string, and my pinky is gonna take its place where now it goes to the fourth front of the third string. I play the same notes. I'm gonna make this into a partial bar chord and now my index finger is freed up to play and notice how my finger flexes backwards. It's actually going to go like this and come back. This is how I get that extra space to be able to get that be minor chord. I have these fingers here just like we won't mention. And now this index finger comes back and now is available toe, take my finger and press it up. It's kind of a weird angle, but I press it up to the fifth string. Second fret and I strong from the fifth string down. If it was any other court and I moved it up, I wouldn't be strumming the open string on the E. I would simply take this part of my finger, the meaty part of the back side of my index finger, and set it down on the strings to mute the first string. That would sound like this. Those how doesn't ring out go sound awful. So we're just muting it on now. We have a partial see court now, and that's moveable anywhere. So C, chord C sharp and so on. But what's important now is to actually go back to this closed, partial, closed to be minor and play that with open or using it without the finger. We can do that, too, or as the same fingers as the aim under and moving it up to friends. Now that we know are B minor core, do some practice with it, get used to it, and we'll see you in the next lesson. 17. F Chord - Guitar Strumming: in this lesson, we're gonna be learning on F chord for our F chord. We're gonna be learning this a couple different ways in the entry version of this court is a three finger cord. So I'm gonna use my index finger on the first fret of the second string. My second finger on the second front of the third string and my third finger on the third fret of the fourth stream on. I'm gonna strum from the fourth string down and adds an e tone to the F, which makes it a suspended chord. We can take our middle finger off, and now we have another suspension where our index finger is on the first fret of the second string and our third finger is on the third fret of the fourth string. And I have this cord. The next version of this court is a little bit more difficult where I have to be able to try to get this part of my hand and this knuckle to arch back so the finger is not forward anymore. But arches back noticed the angle there and the finger. And now how my push or put my pressure on my strings is now taking the pad of my finger, curling the finger back and now putting pressure against this part of my hand, you can put a fair amount of pressure, even if I just want to grab my pick. I can put enough pressure there where it squeezes it pretty good. Now the same thing happens here. You're gonna take the back part of this part of your hand, touch it on the bottom part of your neck so you can't see the back part of my neck. But I'm squeezing about right here but on the back side of the neck so it touches and then my finger gets curled around and in that same shape as I did before, I'm squeezing with my index finger squeezing on the second string and the first ring both on the first rep and you, we should have these two notes. It is very common. They have a hard time getting this done. But if we make sure that we have the right form, it makes it much easier. And if we get our fingers to be able to go all the way up to this front and makes it even easier. Yet once I have these two notes, I'm gonna have my second finger on the second fret of the third string in my third finger. On the third fret of the fourth string on list from From the fourth String Down, another version of my F chord that I have comes very similar as the B chord, the full B chord that we had B minor chord. So it's a common shape that we have for almost all power cords. Except instead of taking the shape here, we're going to move it. One set of frats down. So it was at a B B minor. And then I moved one set of fronts down in one set of strings upwards. So now my index fingers on the first fret of my sixths string. My ring finger is going to be on the third fret of the fifth string, where my pinky is on the third front of the fourth string, and now my middle finger is going to be on the second front of the third string. My middle finger is also going to mute the second string, and the media part of this finger is gonna touch this string the first round and mute dad as well. Way call this a partial barred F chord. It was fully barred all of these strings would ring out. But because we're thinking more on the beginner line of this f chord, we're gonna have a partial board f All right, take some time to get comfortable with your F cords and we'll see you in the next lesson when you're ready. 18. D7 Chord - Guitar Strumming: in this lesson, we're gonna be learning the D seven chord and shapes go. The D seven chord is an inversion of triangle of our full record. So I'm going to use my index finger. I'm gonna put it on the first fret of the second string. My middle finger goes on the second fret of the third string and my third finger goes on the second fret of the first string and I strum from the fourth string down. Now that we know are d seven chord get used to it and we'll see you in the next lesson. 19. B7 Chord - Guitar Strumming: in this lesson, we're gonna be learning the B seven chord. We just got done learning the D seven chord. All we're going to do is take those fingers and move them up one set of strings and now move them up. One more set of strings. So two sets of strings. Traditionally, we find the B seven in books, including this pinky. My first finger is going to be on the first fret of the fourth string. My middle finger is going to be on the second fret of the fifth string and my ring finger is going to be on the second front of the third string on now my pinky is gonna go all the way down to the first string and that's also gonna be on the second fret and I'm gonna strum from the fifth string down for a short form B seven chord. I'm going to remove the pinky and Onley play these four notes This'll Last note is muted by this string On the bottom part of that meaty parts will end up and touch that string. Some plain 5 50 during the fourth string, the third string on a muted second string I can also mute the eastern this bottom string with the back part of this finger touching here. I mean, do some practice with your B seven chord, get used to it, and we'll see you in the next lesson. 20. Example - Boom Chuck Strum - Guitar Strumming: in this lesson, we're gonna get started off with strumming with the boom Chuck Strom with this example of a boom chuck strum the boom just means the bass note up a court. In this case, we're using a G chord, and the chuck simply means the three or four bottom string list. So if I use a boom, that's a bass note than a Chuck. Is that stream of the bottom strings? No, what? I use a bass note. It's going toe bounce a little bit like bouncing up and down on a trampling. That same motion, you're gonna go through the strings, jump off the strings. Now that movement is quite a bit just exaggerated for your view. But we're gonna make a smaller Reuben and then as the pick is away from the strings, then I'm going to come down on swoop through the strings two chords that I'm going to use in this example R a g chord and a c chord where my boom or my based out is on my five string thing, Chuck is still the same Boom, chuck bottom three or four strings. So when I count my boom Chuck Strom is gonna be one followed by two being the Chuck 34 And I'm done with my measure. It's gonna happen again. Chuck. Chuck, if I count two measures, it's gonna look like this. 1234 to 234 At the end of those two measures I'm gonna go to a C chord or this finger comes down One string And now I'm booming Or the bass note being the third fret of the fifth string Someone had a bull. 12342234 And that's two measures of a C So if I go back and forth between my G for two measures and my C for two measures it looks like this g on I switched to see On my way up through the strings My finger comes down So my hand comes up for my strumming in in my middle finger comes down at the same time Watch All right So they do a slow motion So this is 1234 I get ready for the sea And then the boom happens 12 three, four On the way up the finger comes up back to the G chord. And no, 1234234 They switched together, one Teoh on. Then they both come up together for the G chord. All right, here's your example. Along with the backing track that will be using. And this is at 120 beats per minute. So this is an example. So just listen, we're gonna count. 12342234 Change chords. Go ahead and practice your boom Chuck. Strum along with your G and your seat cord to measures of peace. And when you're ready to practice it together, we'll see you in the next lesson. 21. Practice Session - Boom Chuck Strumming Pattern - Guitar Strumming: welcome to the boom chuck practice session. We're gonna be playing along with a backing track, and it's going to be used at 80 beats per minute. There's going to be two beats that are clicks big long ones. Click, click, and those beats air just to get us aware to get us ready to play. So we're getting our fingers in position and so on. Now, after that, there's gonna be four faster click. So there's the too long clicks. Click, click and in the fast clicks click, click, click, Click and that's our count in a beat of four. So accounts one whole measure for us, for it us to be able to do nothing and just get ready for that one against a 1234 bone. And then we use our boom or a bass note on our Jeanne. We're using two measures of G and two measures of C. One thing to keep note of is that if we were doing it on a D chord, our moon note or a bass note would be the fourth string or for an F court, same thing before string. If I'm using, uh, let's say a c chord for us. This secret by boom is gonna be on my five or a b chord. Or let's say I'm gonna do a B minor chord That's still the same thing. That five. So any chord that its root tone is on the five string I have boomed the five. If I'm using a G chord, my boom is on my six or my F chord. Anything that has an e route like my e chord myself is gonna be boomed on the six. Just something to keep note of. All right, let's get to it. And we're gonna be playing this at 80 beats per minute. Here's the four faster clicks shut 34 now switched to see 23 four back to G 0234 Now to see back to G O in the sea. One Teoh 34 back. 1232234 Switch. Last time we're gonna end on Jean. All right. This particular backing track was at 80 beats per minute, But at the bottom of this course in the course tools, you'll find a various amount of backing tracks that are both slower than this. 80 beats per minute and faster than the 80 beats per minute. So if you will feel like you need to be challenged and you want to go faster with your boom chucks, go ahead and go down to the bottom of this course and simply play along with a faster track . You'll be able to match up the backing tracks with this practice session with the course tools because they'll be labeled as the section and be labeled for the lesson that they're used for. All right in the next video is simply going to be and backing track by itself at 80 beats, but per minute so you don't have to see me play and it gives you an opportunity to play without a visual stimulant. So you're going to have to hear where the boom is and the chuck is. So do some practice with that, and when you're ready, we'll see you in the next lesson. 22. #1 - 80 Beats Per Minute - Class Tools #1 Below - Guitar Strumming: 80 beats per minute. 23. Example - Boom Chuck Down Up Down Up Strumming Pattern - Guitar Strumming: Now that we know Abou Chuck Strong, we're going to get to know a boon. Chuck Down, up, down, up strum boom Chuck down, up, down, up stream So we're still going to use the same chuckas we use before, Except we're going to add some simple features to it, too. Fancy it up a little bit. So after I get the Moonshot done, next part is going to be finding my second, third and fourth strings and simply go down and then up eso if you could just find those strings in practice going down and up on the 4th 3rd and second string. Now we have that We're gonna do the next part and go down up on the third, second and first ring. So if I only do the down, up, down, up part of the boom, Chuck down, up, down, up Strum It looked like this. I first go down and up on my 4th 3rd and second string thing. Then I use my 3rd 2nd and first string and I go down, up, I put the two together and it sounds like this for an exercise. Simply take the boom chuck out of your strum for just a second will put it back in and we're on. Lee doing the down, up, down, up part on the 432321 All right, let's do that. But now put the boom chuck in front of it, and I'm gonna do real slow At first we have boohoo, Chuck Down, down, Shut down, down, Shut Down, down, Chuck, Down, down All right, Get used to your new strum the boom, Chuck Down, up, down, up, strum And when you're ready to do the practice session, we'll see there. 24. Practice Session - Boom Chuck Down Up Down Up Strumming Pattern - Guitar Strumming: Here's the practice session to our boom Chuck Down, down on strum Keep in mind when we moved to the C chord will be moving our finger one set of strings down and changing our base note to the five string And that's all that changes. If we were going to move to a d chord which isn't present in this song, we would simply Booth all right. We have two measures of G and two measures of CNN revolves around just like we did before. Except this time, instead of a simple guitar backing track, I've chosen, uh, just a slow country backing track for this one at 80 beats per minute. Here we go. - I think there last time. All right. The next video is going to be simply that backing track 80 beats per minute so that you can practice is much as you want to before you move on. And it's always down at the bottom. The course tools is going to be a host of different backing tracks for to use some slow or some faster. Just choose one that feels good for you. All right. Once you ready after that practice backing track that will see you in the next lesson 25. #2 - 80 BPM - Class Tools #2 Below - Guitar Strumming: 80 beats per minute. 26. Example - Boom Chuck 4321 - Guitar Strumming: in this lesson. We're gonna be learning the boom, Chuck. 4321 strong. We're gonna play the boots on. And now we're only going to focus on playing the fourth string, then the third straight and on the second string in the first. And it's very important that my pick goes down. Then up then down, up, down, up, down. Now let's take the boom. Chuck away for just a second. And we're simply going to practice the 4321 part for one. All right, practice that at your own speed taking Get it up to that speed that I just played it at. Then we're going to take the boom chuck and added, along toe are 4321 and it looks like this for 34321 shot for 3 to 4321 shot four through. Uh, it changes slightly. We moved this C chord. Since our fourth string is muted, we're going to change our fourth string to playing a down on our fifth strings and out sounds. 53 Teoh, Chuck 532153 to shut 53 five And And if we were going to play a D, which we aren't in this particular version or practice session. It would simply be D String, the fourth string shot, 432 or any other corps that has its root on the fourth string. All right, practice your boom Chuck 4321 strum and we'll see in the practice session. 27. Practice Session - Boom Chuck 4321 - Guitar Strumming: in this practice session will be using a little bit of ah, pop type of a feel with an 80 beat per minute backing track. We're gonna take two measures of G and two measures of see, just like we've having the previous sessions to make learning these strumming patterns. Easiest possible. You're you're 435315 53 five This'll last time. Great work. Go ahead to the next lesson where we're only playing that backing track. 80 beats per minute. As always, it is a little too fast for you. Go down to the course tools, find a slower one. If you want to challenge, just find one that's a little faster and do a lot of practice. And are you ready for the next strumming pattern will see in the next lesson. 28. #3 - 80 BPM - Class Tools #3 Below - Guitar Strumming: 80 beats per minute. 29. Example - Straight Strum - Guitar Strumming: in this lesson. We're gonna be working with something called a straight Strom, and it sounds like it is. I take my cord and I stream through, no matter what the court is e I strum all the way through, but I make sure that I strum slow enough so that I hear the individual knows e don't strong fasteners. I don't hear the individual notes, but I strum fast enough where it's just a tentative. After I get done playing mine straight. Strom, I'm going to add a certain amount of down ups to it. Down, down, down on that will fill the space until I do another down all the way through through a straight stretch. So let's try that nice and slow about this. Listen, once down, down, down, down strong, Down, down, down straight, Stroke down. All right, practice your new straight strong here all those individual tones as you get through the strings and when you're ready for the practice session and we'll see there 30. Practice Session - Straight Strum - Guitar Strumming: in this practice session, we're gonna be doing our straight strong followed by a down, up, down, down, down, down, down, down, strum Down, down on repeats itself over until I do my next chord And just, like always, we're gonna have RG for two measures and then r c for two measures So it's gonna look like this That's straight Strum down on switch course to see on just resolves itself back over and over and over. All right, we're gonna start with a nice Celtic backing track. Once you start working with those backing tracks in the different genres of music, you'll learn that every single strumming pattern will work with every single genre of music . Some work better than the others, but they all over because they're based on off the same basic structure of music. 80 beats per minute down back, - going one last time for free. All right, use your backing track in the next video to practice along with it. If it's a little too fast for you, just use a backing track at the bottom of this course that fits your needs or if you want to try to play a little faster than use a backing track that's a little faster. Try toe tryto stretch yourself just a little bit, and when you're ready, we'll see you in the next lesson. 31. #4 - 80 BPM - Class Tools #4 Below - Guitar Strumming: 80 beats per minute big. - Okay , okay, okay. 32. Example - Individualized Picking Pattern - Guitar Strumming: in this lesson, we're gonna be working with an individualized picking pattern. And we already know this from D A little bit with that 4321 role. And if I was on Lee doing the D, I'd only see that 4321 roll for three down, down. If I'm gonna do a C chord, everything stays the same Except that four. So 32 waters the same. But now I'm gonna switch to that C chord and I'm gonna go five, 321 532 my geek or it's gonna be rather different or I go six followed by for 31 64316 for 316431643 For our backing track have chosen 80 beats per minute. We're using a nice fun little folk backing track along with Cuban drums, and were going to be using the 1st 2 measures being G followed by two measures of G. But now in the second line, we're doing two measures and G and then to measures of D and that whole space repeats G c g d g c g g, g, c G G G C g d as we move along in this battery first, have RG see back to Geo I think now the d chord We're gonna use this team Full D chord on that repeats itself back to G and we start again. All right, get used to playing your individualized picking pattern through G C g d. And what? Are you ready for the practice session? We'll see there. 33. Practice Session - Individualized Picking Pattern - Guitar Strumming: in this practice session were doing individualized picking with our G chord or C corn and R d chord this time, and you're going to hear it at 80 beats per minute to a nice folk voke backing track with a nice Cuban drum. - Todo cae back to the last time. All right, that was 80 beats per minute. If it was too fast, simply go down to those course tools. Find a speed that works for you. If it's a little too slow free and you really want to try to get their little faster, choose a faster speed. And once you're through that practice video of 80 beats per minute and you're you're up to speed, there are view Chosen is faster Warner, a slower one. We'll see you in the next lesson. 34. #5 - 80 BPM - Class Tools #5 Below - Guitar Strumming: 80 beats per minute. 35. Example - 3 and 3 Strum - Guitar Strumming: in this lesson, we're gonna be using Ah, three and three strum. And that term comes from using a G chord or something that has all six strings in a cinema . Mi mama strum or roll, We're simply going to be using the top three strings that six string the fifth string in the fourth string and playing down on the very top strings at 65 and four and then followed by going down on the 32 and one string. So I put him together. I have 6543 I call these the top set in the bottom strip just because it's higher to the ceiling and lower to the ground. So wanna have top set bottom set, top set Bottoms down, down, down, down Want to put them together when it comes to a C chord? I don't have three strings anymore that separate each other, So I have to share a string. So my secret is gonna be the fifth string, the fourth string and the third string Now where the shared string is three. So now the other set is going to be 32 and one so five, 43 followed by 3 to 1 for an e minor court. I'm gonna be using my third finger and my pinky just like my G chord. But now my e minor is the first finger on the second front of the fifth string, and my second finger is the second fret of the fourth string. And just as we learned while we learning their e minor, we can use our index finger or our middle finger to cover both strings by flattening amount and putting it in the middle. I'm going to use just like my G chord. 654321 And in this backing track exercise that we're about to do my chords that I'm gonna use our gene thing. E minor thin. See, I go back to Jean, but she happens again because G is the last court and G is the first course I have to start over at G. All right, practice that, and once you're ready for the practice session, we'll see there 36. Practice Session - 3 and 3 - Guitar Strumming: in this practice session. We're using 80 beats per minute with a nice electric guitar. Feel the bow out Obama a really cool sound along with some nice high and tight drums. So the cords again our g e minor c N g g happens again. So don't start on that e Minor says G E minor c g that it goes back to G again. He minor c g. What's ready? Here we go. Start on, Angie. Way back to G again. Here. Minor to see back. Teoh H E again, you minor c Back to way. I see. Thank G E Minor. Then see back Teoh Geo E Minor. I see Booth. All right, Take some time to practice with this and the next backing track that's at 80 beats per minute. It's just what we've heard at 80 beats per minute is always go down to the bottom of this course and find a track suits your needs. And when you're ready, we'll see in the next lesson. 37. #6 - 80 BPM - Class Tools #6 Below - Guitar Strumming: 80 beats per minute. 38. Example - Cross-picking - Guitar Strumming: in this lesson, we're gonna use the same notes that we used with our individualized picking pattern, but changing them into a strum called cross picking cross picking just simply means instead of going through a role, we're crossing over strings. So I cross over the eastern It normally would have still going down, up, down, up Patterned But I'm crossing over the string So I cross over the fourth string to get the third string and I play the fourth string and I cross over the third string to get to the first string e Put that together. It sounds a little bit like this. Now, in this particular strumming pattern, we could just simply play those cross picks on way. We're gonna add one step further and we're gonna go down, up, down on the second, then the third, and then the second string down, down. And that happens for every single chord that we decide to play. Now. My G court sounds like this three, followed by E minor is the same picking pattern. 6341232 Then I go to a C chord. 523123 to 1 or back to Geo. All right, practice your cross picking pattern and then the addition of the 23 And when you're ready for that practice session, we'll see there. 39. Practice Session - Cross-picking - Guitar Strumming: in this practice session. We're using a country ballon backing track. At 80 beats per minute are cords that will be playing our G, e, minor, C and G just like we have before. But we're using it in a slightly different way by using cross picking after the cross pick , doing one more little step in doing up, down first on these second string than the third string first. Okay, see that way , State and again last time you spend some time working with this and the next backing track at 80 beats per minute using your cross picking. Once you feel comfortable and you're ready for the next lesson, we'll see you there. 40. #7 - 80 BPM - Class Tools #7 Below - Guitar Strumming: 80 beats per minute. - Yeah , - okay . 41. Example - Mixing it Up - Guitar Strumming: in this course, we're gonna be mixing it up by using different patterns we've already learned in previous lessons. Our G chord is now going to be three and threes Theun our e minor is going to be boom chuck for 31 When we get to our C chord, it's going to be across pick. So I try to put them all together and really slow. First, the three in three Booth then see, is the cross booth. All right, when you're ready and you feel comfortable switching the different techniques that were used in strumming patterns and we'll see you in the next practice session. 42. Practice Session - Mixing it up - Guitar Strumming: in this practice session. We're mixing it up first, using our three and threes followed by our boom chuck 4321 then our cross picking panel for a scene. All right, let's do it. Okay. - Take some time practicing this at 80 Biggs per minute in the next video or by going down to the course tools and practice going to speed that you like. And when you're ready, we'll see in the next lesson. 43. #8 - 80 BPM - Class Tools #8 Below - Guitar Strumming: 80 beats per minute to 44. Example - Inside Roll - Guitar Strumming: in this particular lesson we're going to be using inside roles and inside rolls means that they're gonna be cords that go on the inside. So, like, a C chord or e minor chord something like that. And we're going to be using 4321 the's inside strings versus the outside strings, like six and one. So in this particular exercise, we're gonna be starting out with the e minor chord with my three and my pinky, and it's gonna look like this down, up, down, up Just like normal. Next, we're gonna move to a Sikh or but we're gonna try toe intend for our four string to ring out when it was dead before I think I'm going to switch to a d chord. And instead of playing my inside strings, I want to switch down one set of strings to 4321 on my last chord is gonna be a G or I'm gonna do outside roles. So I put it together. It's gonna look something like this, and we'd do it really slow inside role. Then see Dean Theun Gene, remember that last one is an outside role. When we're going to do it again, practice your inside rolls a lot. When you're ready for the practice session, we'll see there 45. Practice Session - Inside and Outside Rolls - Guitar Strumming: in this practice session will be doing. Our inside roles are 4321 for D and then RG as an outside roll. So we start with E minor than moving to a C both inside roles than to a 4321 roll on a D chord than outside roll. Six 431 Take some time and work on your inside rolls. When you're ready to move through the next backing track session and move on to the next lesson, we'll see there. 46. #9 - 80 BPM - Class Tools #9 Below - Guitar Strumming: 80 beats per minute. 47. Exercise - Sweep Strumming Pattern - Guitar Strumming: in this lesson, we're gonna be learning a sweep strong. This is much different than a melodic sweep, but this is going to be a chord based sweep. And for our g chord, it looks like this. All right, we have this G court and we're going to use a down on six string down on the fourth string down on the third string. And after I get that done, sounds like this. Once I have that, the next step is it's going to be and up on to bottom strings or three bottom strings. Once I have that, the next step is gonna have three ups in a row. 123 I could if I was on Lee intending to use that much of my strum. I could move on to the next court if I wanted Teoh. However, we're going to use to full measures of G. So we're gonna hang out on that court for a while. So we're gonna end up doing the strumming pattern that sweet followed by, um after I do, the three ups unloaded you 71234567 Up, down, up, down, up, down. I'm gonna put it together and I'm gonna count after my sweep. Here's a sweep. 123456714567 Here it is. A little quicker. Up, Down, up, Down, up, Down, up, Down, up, down, up, down, up! 1234567 Put it together a little slower. Now we're gonna play our C chord. But the strings that we use for our C court are are fifth string the third string, this second string. And then I followed up with those ups. So real slow is those seven tones again The up, Down, up, down, up, down, Up, up, Down, up, down, up, down A Ah! A little slower now for my d chord That's gonna be 43 to a what downs again followed by my up up followed by those seven up downs The other core that we're using This exercises e minor and it looks like just like G where we used 643 in the song that we're going to use or the back on track we're going to use to measures of G second measure on thing to measures have seen. Now we're going to do? Ah, half measure of E minor, 1/2 measure of C ah, half measure of D and 1/2 measure of G, and those moved by pretty quick. So it's just that sweep followed by the scene. The thing Dean on the I think I'm going to end my backing track with D. One measure on that. I'm going to play D seven and we've learned this in a previous lessons. A D seven on on the Whole Thing repeats two measures of G two measures of C two beats of e minor, two beats of C two beats of D two beats of G, then ah, whole measure. That's four beats of D and then four beats of that d seven chord practice a lot. Get comfortable with your new sweep strum and we'll see you in the practice session. 48. Practice Session - Sweep Strumming Pattern - Guitar Strumming: in this practice session. We're using our sweeps on, and there's gonna be two measures of G two measures of C two beats of e minor, two beats of C two piece of D back to G for two beats. And then we finish the last line with one measure of D and then one measure of D seven. That was a fun funk beat along with our sweeps. What we're gonna do is we're gonna practice that a lot. We're gonna try to be able to try to get up to speed to 70 beats per minute. And for some reason, you can't no worries. You always have those selections to be able to slow down the video or go down to the bottom of the course content and go to course tools and then find a backing track to the speed of your desire. So rather be slower, Weatherby. Faster. No big deal. Just do lots of practice with the next video, which is simply that backing track at 70 beats per minute. And when you're ready to move on to the next lesson, we'll see there 49. #10 - 70 BPM - Class Tools #10 Below - Guitar Strumming: 70 beats per minute. Both Now how? Well, now you 50. Exercise - Muted Vamp - Guitar Strumming: in this lesson, we're going to be learning a vamp strum, and we're going to add a couple of variables along with it to make it work. Along with this backing track that we're gonna use someone to start out with a g chord and I'm going to use to booms after the boom. I'm going to have my index finger come down and just touch, not press down. But just touch the two middle strings and my pinky and my ring finger are just going to alleviate the pressure so that they're not ringing out and they're dead. They're muted, so it's gonna sound like this. So I have three downs in a Rome followed by Boom, commute, um, down. And all of those tones for those down ups are also gonna be muted. So I really only here what I really want to hear out of my first down after my boom is a partial chord. So as I'm coming through the strings, I hear some of it. But it happened. The mute and the strum happened at the same time. She only get just the essence of the last notes and the rest of our all just straight up muted. Okay, so we have mood commute up, down, down, down. After we have that, we're gonna move to a C chord. The only thing that changes is my middle finger goes to a C tone that third fret on the fifth string and I moved my d court and I play 1/4 string two notes to booms just like normal. And then I'm gonna get through the strings and then meet them, followed by up, down, up, straight up meats. Now, in this song that we're gonna do, we're going to use one chord, each form. So now we have to switch bendy thing. I have to go back to G. After I'm done with G, the whole form starts over again. So I have to start another G. And it'll feel like we're playing two G's in a row. But in reality, I played G C D G, and then repeated G c D g. If I play two in a row, it'll sound like this back to G and G again. Then see, indeed. Take some time in practice, your mute advancing. And when you're ready, we'll see you in the practice session 51. Practice Session - Muted Vamp - Guitar Strumming: in this practice session were musing, muted vamping with RG, followed by C, then D followed by G again. Then it repeats. So let's get started last time through. Take some time to get used to your muted vamp in practice with it. That was at 70 beats per minute. And, like always, if it's a little too fast for you, you can either slowed down the video. You can go down to the bottom of the course into the course tools and choose a slower backing attract or a faster back on track. If you want to challenge yourself a little bit, so do a lot of practice. Get good at it and we'll see you in the next lesson. 52. #11 - 70 BPM - Class Tools #11 Below - Guitar Strumming: 70 beats per minute. Oh, okay. 53. Exercise - Repetitive Down Strum - Guitar Strumming: in this lesson. We're gonna be using a repetitive down strum And this downstream is just simply down, down, down, down, down, down, down, down Strum So repeating downs, repetitive downstream Pretty simple, right? All right, So what we're gonna do is we're gonna play a G chord, but you're going toe that next drink and let the next triggering down. So we have six mute ring and we're just gonna hear ring out and we want to count eight. We're gonna go one Teoh said the name or from a other beat structure of one and three more . And in this particular section, there's no beat structure. There's no emphasis on any tone. It's just simply getting used to that downstream. So we're gonna go back and forth between g thing, maybe to see if you accidentally hit the six string. When you're playing a C. It's helpful to be able to take that middle finger and then push it up slightly and then mute that sixth string and you won't have any trouble with it. Rain. Now, because you're meeting it in the case of a d chord, you're still gonna be doing the same thing. Except you're starting on your fourth string. All right, Get used to practising with your down strums your repetitive down strums and we'll see you in the practice session. 54. Practice Session - Repetitive Down Strum - Guitar Strumming: in this practice session, we're gonna be using the repetitive down strum, and we're gonna count to eight when we do it. So those eight beats our eighth notes so one into n three and four and or just simply 12345678 Whichever is easier for you. That's going to indicate that you've done one measure. There's two measures of G and two measures of C, and it just repeats and loops over and over again. So we're gonna go 1234567812345678 and switched to the C chord. 123456781234567 And then simply repeat over. Over. 1234567815123456781234567 All right, let's do it way last time. All right, get used to your repetitive down strum play with this video, the next backing track video, and when you're ready for the next lesson, we'll see there 55. #12 - 90 BPM - Class Tools #12 Below - Guitar Strumming: 90 beats per minute. 56. Exercise - Different Emphasis - Guitar Strumming: in this lesson will be using what we've previously learned in a repetitive down strum. But we're gonna use, um, different emphasis tones. And it's really important that in the last lesson, we counted to eight. So we got ourselves for this lesson. So we had 12345678 We're going to have an emphasis tone on one. So it's gonna be 1234567 The next emphasis tone that we're gonna have is one reform. So now it's the one and 412345671 Those emphasis cords just mean you play them a little harder. And what I mean a little harder is just a little bit. We're not smashing, but just a little bit harder so that you can hear difference in the loudness of the strong . So all of the rest of the notes air just a little bit softer or normal. So we had 12345612 for one. Now that we have, those were also going to include seven and eight being harder tones won t four except 1671 get used to your repetitive down strum using your 147 and eight being emphasized, and we'll see you in the practice session. 57. Practice Session - Different Emphasis - Guitar Strumming: in this practice session will be doing the exact same thing as the last practice session. The G to see. But now we're just counting, and we're using emphasis tones on the one the four in the seven of the eight. Here we go 70 beats per minute so we can count 11 one last time. Practice your new repetitive down strum along with your emphasized tones, and we'll see you in the next lesson. 58. #12 - 90 BPM - Class Tools #12 Below - Guitar Strumming: 90 beats per minute. 59. Exercise - Variations of Open Power Chords - Guitar Strumming: in this lesson, we're gonna learn some variations of chords so that we can plan as open power courts. The 1st 1 is E. We learned e this way, and we're going to play it like this instead, our index finger is going to be on the seventh fret of the fifth string. Seventh fret over the fifth string. Our ring finger is going to be on the ninth fret of the fourth string nine threat of the fourth string. So practice just playing those two notes. For some of us, it might be a little bit of a reach. Make sure that our rest is nice and straight is always when we're doing it. Now our pinky is gonna go into the ninth fret of the third string, and I have these notes and this is my new open power cord E e open power cord. And if I have all over the notes down, I'm gonna just simply strum all the way down on. Then I have that nice e chord. The next court we're gonna learn is going to be based off this e chord. But it's gonna be a B corn. So what? I mean by that is we're going to first start to play this E. Once we're done, we're going to know where our fingers are and then base our next cord off of it. And the next four does it be we're gonna take these two fingers, the third finger and the fourth finger, and we're gonna move him one set of strings upwards. So I took the to middle strings and I put him up one set of strings and I have these two notes take my index center just off, and I only have these two notes My ring finger on the ninth threat of the fifth string bond . Then I have my pinky on the nine threat of the fourth string. Now I have my middle finger here. It's gonna go on the eighth fret of the third string, and then I'm going to strum all the way down. We call these open chords because we use all of the strings. Just open ringing strings. Eso practice going back and forth between e and me askew, play them, start to recognize that they're two different shapes. The next court that we're gonna learn looks exactly like this shape. But instead of playing it with an e chord on our seventh and ninth fret. We're gonna move down to the fourth fret with our index finger and the six threat with our third finger and her fourth finger. No, it's the same strings and everything, but I move. 1233 frets down one to three. All right, now that I know that it's the same shape and the same fingers and the same strings, I'm going to now play my e chord followed by my beak or note these guys move up in the index finger goes away My middle finger comes down to the eighth fret of the third string and then I'm going to go down and play the sea Sharp, minor chord. So those are my three Just gonna play the way, then the B, then my C sharp, minor chord. My next chord is going to be an accord and I have these two fingers coming up. One fret. They go up one set of strings and then I put my middle finger on the sixths fret of the third string. So these guys look exactly like the same shape as my B chord. Waas way went E And then these two fingers moved up and this middle finger came down. It was B chord. I could take that. Be courting. I go one two sets of friends down and then I have a cord. But in relationship to my c sharp chord, these guys go up and up so they go up one set of fronts than one set of strings. And then I can take my middle finger and put it down to the next string. That sixths fret on the third string and I stream it all the way down. So we're gonna go back and forth between our E then our for then our C chord C sharp or C sharp minor. And then our eight Ford did a couple more times. E then be, then see sharp. We're gonna move a a little faster. E then B c sharp minor. Make sure you're learning them exactly in that order. For now, the thin the being in the C sharp minor in the, um, get used to that play, um, play as much as you can try to get faster at the switching of the cords. When you ready, we'll see it in the next lesson. 60. Exercise - Palm Muting - Guitar Strumming: in this lesson, we're gonna learn palm muting and use the courts we've used in a previous lesson this thin be thin that c sharp minor on a We're also gonna use our down strum are continuous down strum So what's happening is on this side of my hand I have these two ridges of my hand where they meet the wrist So one where the pinky is and one where the thumb is and I'm going to place them on my bridge And the farther I get my hand while it touches of making contact the further that I get it towards my strings, the more it's going to meet. So my palm is muting the strings and the lessons going to mute is I'm going to take my hand up towards the bridge and eventually away and it won't need anymore. So here's a good example of no mute, but I still have a touching in all palm mute goes from the wrist. So we were going from her album before Big Swath emotions with our strums. This is all done simply from our rest. Okay, Now that I know what we're doing, we're just going to just take that wrist and pull it behind the bridge and set it on these bridge pins. And if I used this chord and I use continuous downs, notice that they sound exactly the same if I just run it. But now I'm gonna move my whole hand just a little bit more. So now they're going to be on the top of this bridge right on top of the white part of the saddle. So there's gonna go move forward just a little bit. And now it sounds a little different. Still here, a little bit of open string. This system open strings, and I'm gonna palm you. Now I'm gonna move my hand just a little bit forward to get a little bit more meat. If I move it to forward, I won't hear any original sound. Just meet with strings. So it might take just a little bit of movement back and forth for you to get the right tone . And I want you gather the right tone. Just leave it set there. So as we do, those continuous downs were also going to use the emphasised tone. One, 47 and eight to live Won t 345678123456781234 Facts except one t 345678 24 7 Take some time to practice. If you don't have it, you could pause the video if you need toe, just get used to it. And then once was already just hit the play button. Right? So now, now that we're used to that, we're gonna go to that be cord, and we're going to do the same thing. And we're playing these strings Onley The fifth string, the fourth string and the third string for our pommy. Somebody used to that big court. Now I'm using those emphasized tones. 12345678 Then I'm gonna go down to the C sharp. This is the fourth fret in the sixth Threat won t 3456 703 Pull back six. And then my accord, which goes up one set of frets one set of strings and then my middle finger comes down one Duthie 6 70 23 4567 Now let's do this really slow. I'm going to go all the way around the cords from E to B to C sharp to a one, Teoh. Ready? Go won t 34567816 and 123456746 666 six Were a little bit faster. 6678 Uh huh. Ah, a little faster. Uh, All right, take some time and get used to your palm muting along with your new open power chords. We'll see you in the practice session. 61. Practice Session - Palm Muting - Guitar Strumming: in this practice session will be using our open power chords E, B, C, sharp, minor and A along with our continuous towns, using our emphasis tones and playing one measure per cord. Remember to paw me it last time. All right, take some time and use your backing tracks wisely. Use a backing track that is up to your speed or whatever. It is a slower when a faster one or this one here at 90 beats per minute in the next video , Siri's Once you're ready for the next lesson, we'll see there. 62. #13 - 60 BPM - Class Tools #13 Below - Guitar Strumming: 60 beats per minute. 63. Exercise - Strum Up Up - Guitar Strumming: in this lesson, you're gonna be learning a down, up, up, strong and it's simply going to be with a geek or or a strum of the top strings Doesn't matter which one you choose and then we're strains and then up on a middle strings way. Have, let's say we're gonna do booze. Strong strings now do the same thing. But with a strong, strong eso, you could use your own variations for me. I want to use a strong, nicest pretty When we changed our secret, The same thing is in place except our changes to our C on then to our d chord. We just start with way on a minor against all the strings were they use the same type of a core progression as we didn't in our last lesson. Except this time it's going to be in that he is Jean versus on e chord that we did. So we're going to do. I mean, one little element are struggling after we get through. These structures were gonna come 5 to 305 on our last little bit off on the count of five is just gonna be down, up, down, up strong until we change our cords and then we're gonna do the same thing on the next corner. Here's what it sounds like along with the backing track. Just is an example for you to listen way what it feels like to do down strong along with down where we change chords, plenty of practice, and when you're ready before the practice session, we'll see you there. 64. Practice Session - Down Up Up - Guitar Strumming: in this practice session will be doing our down, up, up and going to also make sure that we have down of down ups in between our courts. Right before we switched to the next chord. Our core progression is G D E minor C and one measure for each. Here we go way . - All right, do plenty. Practice this again was at 60 beats per minute. For some reason, you need to choose a different speed, go down to the bottom of the course tools and choose a different speed. And if 60 beats works for you, just great go on to the next video, work through it, and when you're ready to move on to the next lesson, we'll see there. 65. #14 - 100 BPM - Class Tools #14 Below - Guitar Strumming: 100 beats per minute. 66. Exercise - Variation of Down Up Up - Guitar Strumming: in this lesson, we're going to be doing a variation three. Only difference is what comes before the down of up strong. So what's gonna happen is running for a G chord. We're going to use the base. No, followed by a new string or a so followed by what I see middle strings. It's gonna be three strings. The second string that they're straining the fourth string in that area. And if he hit more than a couple strings more than three strings intense westerns, it's no big deal because we're playing fast enough. Brittle, kind of all blend in. So we're gonna have the down strings and then the down strong Do this slow. Sounds like this down faster. All the court's gonna be the same except for my face. My mission is just be the middle of the court. My C is just gonna be those strings. So if I used a little bit like this thing, - do some practice trying to your speed up, are you ready for that practice session at 100 beats per minute? Then we'll see you there in the proposition 67. Practice Session - Variation of Down Up Up - Guitar Strumming: in this practice session, we're going to be using our variation of the down, up, up strum where we're going to call it a down middle down, up strum The chords we're gonna be using is a cheek or than a C chord than a G chord than a D chord. And it will revolve over and over and over again Once you're ready at 100 beats per minute , let's go last time. Take plenty of time to practice your new strum. Choose a backing track that fits your needs This happens to be 100 beats per minute And if that suits you, just follow along to the next video And when you're ready, we'll see you in the next lesson. 68. #15 - 100 BPM - Class Tools #15 Below - Guitar Strumming: 100 beats per minute. 69. Exercise - Variation - Down Middle Down Up Up - Guitar Strumming: in this lesson, we're gonna be learning a variation of our down, middle down upstream like we've learned in the last lesson. Except this time, we're gonna get percussive. So what that means is I'm going to do a down followed by the on, and then my hand is going to come down with the pick in my hand and hit the strings. Now, when I hit the strings, it's going to go down through the strings and he'll have a hit. We'll do really slow motion so you can see it. So down through the strings, down through the strings. Let's do that one more time down. Um, hey, did the strings hold a little faster? Get good at doing just that part. Now, when you're ready, move on to this part. We have the boom hit, and now I'm gonna do the two ups once we're ready. And after weaken do that hit pretty regularly. We're gonna move on to this part. It's gonna be down a couple more times down middle and hit a little faster. Down, down, down. One more time. A little faster and a little faster. All right. It takes a little bit of agility to be able to get through that move. But just take some time, really practice it, and then you'll be able to get it. All right, So if I'm moving through the same core decided in the last version of my backing track somebody. Oh, now, keep in mind, this part of our hand is the thing that hits the strings. So it's gonna be partly this part of our thumb and the part of our pinky, but the pick is gonna move through the strings as it hits. All right, get good at your new percussive strung and we'll see you in the practice section. 70. Practice Sessions - Dow Middle Hit Up Up - Guitar Strumming: in this practice session. We're going to be doing a down followed by Andi Hit through the strings followed by our followed by Up down on our cords are going to be G than see then g then d and every involves all the way through all the way through all the way through. Just like normal. All right, Once you're ready, I'm gonna hit the play button last time. All right. Time to practice your percussive Down, up, down Strum Once you're ready to go to the next lesson after your practice and the practice video, I'll see you the next lesson. 71. #15 - 100 BPM - Class Tools #15 Below - Guitar Strumming: 100 beats per minute. 72. Exercise - Boom Chuck Down Up Hit Up - Guitar Strumming: in this lesson. We're gonna take an old strumming pattern that we know called them Shut down, down, up strong! And we're going Teoh repurpose it and put something in there called a percussive hit in the middle. So it looks like this now, boom, Shock down. That's these kind of middle strings And our last down it's gonna be on the bottom strings There's gonna be a boon Shut down on And then I'm gonna hit through the strings And then finally I'm gonna end on up, Chuck down, Shut down, down, down, down, down. We're gonna do that with the same chords. Eso nothing changes except the middle part of the chord that we that we use for that middle version of our strong boom down dad around the okay. Practice your boom, Chuck. Down, up, down, up, Strum with your new percussive feel We'll see you in the practice session 73. Practice Session - Boom Chuck Down Up Hit Up - Guitar Strumming: in this practice session, we're gonna be doing the boom chuck down, get a strum, and it's gonna make it nice and percussive along to this Blue Z backing track. The cords that were going to be using is one measure of G one measure of C, one measure of G and one measure of G. And as always, it just repeats. It repeats it repeats so that we can get good at our strumming pattern going one last time through, As always, take time to practice that once you're through the next practice video or you've chosen a different speed, we'll see you in the next lesson. 74. #16 - 100 BPM - Class Tools #16 Below - Guitar Strumming: 100 beats per minute. - You ? - No . Right. - No , - no , no. With no, - it's not. 75. Exercise - Rolling Percussive Strum - Guitar Strumming: in this lesson, We're gonna be working with a rolling percussive strum So are rolling Strong is simply this . I use my boom I'm gonna go up on middle strings on and then I go down on my bottom strings The ones these trouble strings in the mango up on my tremble strings. Same thing for C e Just go in the middle of my corn trouble strings d chord, Same way where used my d string middle of the cord for my middle And then the two trouble down, up, down, up differences We're gonna add a percussive tone to it. So now we're gonna have the down than up and then I'm going Teoh, hit through the strings and down middle it down, Uh, down. All right, take some time to practice your new rolling percussive strong. And when you're ready for the practice session, we'll see there 76. Practice Session - Rolling Percussive Strum - Guitar Strumming: in this practice session we're gonna be doing ah, honky tonk backing track with the G chord c chord G chord d chord progression All with one measure each for each cordon And we're using our progressive rolling strum So when you ready? Here we go. Hey, Going last time through. All right, Do a lot of practice with your rolling, percussive strong Do some practice in the next video And when you're ready, we'll just see in the next lesson. 77. #17 - 100 BPM - Class Tools #17 Below - Guitar Strumming: 100 beats per minute, but yeah, no and 78. Exercise - Advanced Hammer On Strumming Pattern - Guitar Strumming: in this lesson. We're going to learn an advanced hammer on strumming pattern. It looks like this. The first thing that I want to do is I'm gonna have a G more, same chords. We had for a long time using these two fingers down here, but we're first just gonna do a hammer on from my index finger from the second front hammering on to the six string third fret and And I have to put a fair amount of pressure on this finger or else I won't get a good sound. Lots of pressure. Once I have my hammer on, I'm going to hit the middle set of strings on. Then I'm gonna go up on my bottom set of strings. So we're gonna do this together, Hammer on. Now that I have that I haven't my next step I'm gonna go down for another boom on my bass note of my court. Now, now that I've got that, my next step is after I get that boom, I'm gonna reach down to my bottom sets of strings and do a quick. So I have my hammer on middle bass. No, followed by up, down. So let's do it together we have hammer on metal base known, uh, down Now here's the last part I'm gonna do a down down up But I'm gonna do my middle strings of my chord Followed by the bottom strings of my court on That's the last thing I do So let's do it together we have the ham run bass note on That's pluck upwards down, down bottom One more time down, right See is no different Or just using this seat Oh, for my instead And I'm using the middle part of my strings For that Down and down and down and down and down on I'm gonna go back and forth quick between my G chord and my c chord All right, Once you have that, I'm gonna try to go for my G chord to my C chord But actually trying to strum it in time But slow way back to Geo You're seeing practice your advanced hammer on strong When you're ready, we'll see you in the practice section 79. Practice Session - Advanced Hammer On Pattern - Guitar Strumming: in this practice session. We're going to be using our advanced hammer on strum all right, once you're confident that you can play around 70 beats per minute, it started two measures of G and two measures of C last one. All right, take some time and work with your advanced hammer on strong. If that was a little too fast for you, no worries. Just go to the bottom of this course and the course tools and choose a backing track that fits you whether it be faster or slower and do a lot of practice, and we'll see you in the next lesson. 80. #18 - 70 BPM - Class Tools #18 Below - Guitar Strumming: 70 beats per minute, No. 81. Exercise - Ghost Strum - Guitar Strumming: in this lesson, we're gonna be learning a ghost strong, where there's going to be Two measures of G and then two measures of seen weren't using this effect so that we can emote a certain feeling when we're playing and for the first part, weaken strong gene just about any way we want to. So you can go back and pick any strumming pattern that we've worked on so far. And then for the c chord we're going to do a boom chung followed by Onley The Chuck's little sound like this it would normally sound like shut. Now it on Lee Sounds like Chuck, Chuck, Chuck, Chuck. All right. If I put this into practice is going to sound like this geek or way have to have the boom to start with before we can just add in just the chucks. So this is what it's gonna sound like with a backing track. So just listen, - Booth . Ah, take some time to get used to your ghost from and we'll see you in the practice session. 82. Practice Session - Ghost Strum - Guitar Strumming: in this practice session, we're gonna be using our ghost from after any which way you decide to strum your G chord. After that, we're gonna be moving to the sea and do a boom chuck followed by only Chuck's. And then the next measure, we're gonna do another boom and followed by a chuck animal. Then Onley chucks eso. This is two measures of G two measures of C and revolves around and around way. This backing track was at 70 beats per minute. At the bottom of this course. As always, I've included backing tracks that are slower for you and ones.
