In this popular YouTube video I created a few years ago, I talked about how to play a variety of sub-divisions and how sub-divisions are the foundation and building blocks of ALL rhythm.
In this post, we will take things a step further and get you learning all of the most important sub-divisions and I’ll show you how to practice them to take your rhythm skills to the next level.
One of the most boring things a guitarist can do when playing a strumming song is to strum the song in the exact same way using the exact same strum pattern throughout.
In this post, you’ll learn how simple it is to methodically adapt the strum pattern and how it will give your strumming songs a massive new lease of life.
I’ve said it many times before, but I will say it again. I’m not a huge fan of when guitarists play a song and use just one strum pattern throughout the whole song.
It’s okay when starting out or learning the song but as soon as you are comfortable, start adding more strum patterns, variations and strum fills for a much more powerful effect. Today, I’ll show you how to seamlessly combine different strum patterns to create a piece of music that is exciting and vibrant.
