1. Introduction. What we will learn?: Hi. My name is Alice and they bring in the Lord free, very popular and simple strumming partners. These lessons will be used to understand how pictures rice slamming parts for your song. Also, as a bonus, I'll show you how to use in which case is its use. We'll go make detailed analysis off that each striving property and maybe you'll find your family we'd like, Let's start. 2. Strumming pattern theory. Tips and hints: So let's talk about the fewer first strumming patterns involved. Strumming down is strumming out, strumming a guitar itself, creating a very solid free. You need to think like a drummer. Your job is to keep up the group down and down. You should be able in major in your mind. What is that strong bring? Sounds like deep number one. Keep ellos raced. Firstly, make sure you're not locking your beast, you know, keep it nice and lose. Most of the movements will come from the rotating your lower arm so you can say Bree stink your greased and laid in your hand and the priest, Hank Luce, Follow that motion. Deep number two. Never stop moving your strumming hand you only to keep her stomping hand moving all the time, even if you're not heating the streak. By doing this, you'll no longer have to think about when you need to move strumming cat. It's moving all the time. These motion also makes it my She's air to give you the time number free. Don't eat all strings in every strong. You might think that you need to heat all the streams in every strong, but usually it's not true. Just need to heat this sometimes free, sometimes four streams. So how do you think the streets saying for dependence, remember that it's your main job to keep out the group all the time. 3. 1st pattern analysis: So now we're ready to start with our first thrumming bothering. But first of all, we have to talk about our right hand position how we can use our right fan when we're storming down and strumming up for this, you have to put your thumb printer dump finger on your point finger like this. And when you're strumming down you have to heat the strings using your nails like this. But when you're strumming up you have to use your dumb finger like this and altogether down , down, down Try to do it with yourself and no up Don't up, down So the first time in pattern sounds like this Four down and one up, Down, down, down, Down, Up, down, Down, down, down, down, down, down, down, up, down So it would be very slow Down, down, down, down, down So is it going here When we're going to make our down down you have to make it elegantly foster when you're doing your down down, down So you just have to hear it down down, down, down, down, down, down, down, down, down, down, down, Down To make it easier for you try to repeat this down down, down, down, up, down. When you make your in your in your brain these connection with your hand and it will be easier for you to make this strumming pattern on the game. Down, down, down, down, down, down, down, down, down, down, down, down, up, down, down, down Now don't try to make any church just open streaks down, down, down, down, down, down, down, down, up, down Try to make this exercise a white that your finger can stuck in between the strings like this It's incorrect speculation. So try to make that your fingers glide over it like this. And also, when you're going up, try to avoid this situation with stock in the strengths that sounded gonna be signs like this. It's incorrect just to try the glides streaks like this next one. I would recommend to you this strumming pattern. If you're playing some ballots song, for example, I'm going to play right now thes using this storming pattern with the charts from the previous lesson. Part one. When we were learning the right shirts. Now it's going to sound charts. I am C, G. And altogether it sounds like this. Down, up, down down Down Down up down Down down Down, up, Down Down, down, Down, Down, Down, Down, up, Down, Down, down, Down, up, down, Down, Down, down, down 4. 2nd pattern analysis: here is the second string pattern, and it sounds like this here. We're gonna use the very cool trick. Sounds like a strumming mute and we're gonna learn it. So first of all, let's talk about our right hand in this strong daughter and mostly we're gonna use our town finger for going down and for growing up. So also, try to avoid the situation where your heating stocking between the strings like please, just glide the strings flight. Okay. And the third part is a strawman commute. So here you have to use your nails for going down. And also, in this situation you have at this moment, you have to use your off Tom finger for muting. So here you can see you're going down and at this moment, you're using Jordan Dump Finger like this. So an altogether. It sounds like down, down, up, down, up, down, up, down, up, down, up, Down, up, down So and let game Let's start Where is slow? Show your game Down, out down With muting up, down, up Muting up, down, up Muting up, down, up Muting up down out music And but if you trained to do it slow try to do it fast. Down, down, up, down up, down, up, Down up, Down, up, down, up, down, up, down, up, down, up. And of course, the most difficult part in this strumming pattern is our pal muting. It's a trick that you have to understand how to do it. So I will show you again. Down, up, down. At this moment, use your nails, he the strings. And after this moment, put your Tom finger over it like this. In the end of the position, your have to look like this open opening your pal. I would recommend to use this strumming pattern if you want to play some funky, crazy songs. So let's play this a strong pattern using the A M T shirt, C, G and E also go to the party. Want to learn how to play this charts 5. 3rd pattern analysis: here is the third strumming pattern, and I say that it's most difficult from these three ones, but it's more universal, and it sounds like this. So let's talk about our right arm position already know position because for when we're going down, we're using our nails. When way, when we're going up, we're using our down singer. It sounds like this, but also game train like this don't not stuck between the Straits, just lighting. And also, when we're when we're growing up also, don't start between streaks, just lighting. Okay, now we're it into practice. First of all, I'll show you it's where is slow and also with comments. Try toe are Repeat after me. Down, down, down, down, down, down, up, up, down, Down, up, down, down, down, down, up, down, down, up, up, down, down, up, down And that will show you how it sounds Fast down, down, down, down, down, down, down, down, up Now Down, up, up, up, down, down a down. So talking about the right arm position it's not were difficult because we're here not using any strawman muse or something like this. Just an ordinary streaming down using cover nails and strumming up using our finger so again repeated where slow I can instead that these strumming pattern it's not easy. It's but it sounds really cool. Is it in? See so again? Down, down, down, down, up, down, down, down, down, up, down, down, down, down, up, down, down, down, down, up, down, down, down, down, A down! I would recommend this strumming pattern for any song. I'm using this strong pattern also in all songs, because if you're playing it so it's more lyric if look, if you're playing get fast, it's more. It's for Dr Songs like this it sounds like Okay, now I'm gonna show you how to play it fast. Eso villa difference is very universal starting pattern. I would recommend to use it it every song you played, but also it's a great to learn the new ones 6. + BONUS. How to use a pick?: so and as I promised, as the bombs, and I'll show you how to use Peak playing these strumming patterns that we have learned already. First of all, let's speak about our position, how to hold a peak. Put a big on the point finger in this position, and after that, hold that Tom finger like this. But don't hold it for a solid. Make it to move it easy like this. So when we're going down, just don't hold this big, very strong. Just relax and make it the glad the streets like this. You see, it's jumping from the first dream to the second and third NTC. If you're holding the big do strong, it's going to sound like this. Correct? Just making life. So when you're going up, just rotate your hand like this and don't hold a beaker strong. Also, relax your hand and live this life. This drink like this when you change your position, also, rotate your hand and go down. Red date. Go up or take go down altogether. It sounds like this. It's the right position. If you're doing it, incorrect is going to sound like this. That means that you have to relax your hand. So now let's see how sounds our our storming patterns when we using the peak. So the first bongos Down, down, down Then up, down, down, down, Down, down, down, down, down, up, Down, down, down Then up, down, down, down, Down, up, Down The third streaming Better way for the second strumming pattern Where we're using our mood String mute technique We have to use our pound to make this mute like this So insides like this Down, up, down, up, down up, down, down, Down, up, down, up, down You see, I'm using only the power It's harder to make this like this without the mediator without the peak When you're using peak it's a little bit harder So we just strange down mute down Butte down Mute down a mute and foster down Mute mute Down, up, Down, up, down Mute Okay, so when we're gonna use this speak as you can hear Peak makes our sound more deeper and more louder on also can hear the sound off plastic that's catching our streams Mostly me dinner is using on the concert to make sounds more deeper If you're not on the concert first awful tried to make the strumming patterns using all the event. The peak. It's a I think that it's a next level. So, first of all, practice without the peak and after that, tried to make this already know strumming patterns with a peak. 7. How patterns work in "Toss the coin to your witcher" song?: Now we know free swimming. Patrick's can be used in every song. For example, we can play the song Does the coin to your which using these three already in old Padres Jones, The coin to your we shoot. Oh, Molly Teoh was a coin to your region, Owhali Plan Teoh Awali Your plenty, Wayne Teoh.
