Live Lesson Every Wednesday for 10 Weeks

Ten whole weeks on strumming? Is there really that much to cover? YES! ...And you will be strumming for your whole guitar playing life so getting started in the right ways is going to be crucial to your enjoyment and success with your guitar playing! For beginner and intermediate guitar players, strumming is one of those techniques that can feel and sound SO awkward if you do not know how to approach it. The default bent for most players is to simply listen to songs they like or pick up a songbook and try to duplicate what they are hearing. This often doesn't work so well because guitarists have missed a KEY step when it comes to finding and developing their own natural sense of timing and rhythm.

Week 1 - Shake It and Strum It

Oct 14th at 8:00pm EST

We are going to get in the groove. We are not worried about chords, notes or melodies this week. It's all about feeling the beat. -In our strumming hand and in our whole bodies. We're going to do some foot tapping, clapping, string scratching, and egg shaking to focus in on our inner rhythm.

Week 2 - The Human Metronome

Oct 21st at 8:00pm EST

Before we start learning any specific rhythm patterns, we need to establish what makes great rhythm truly tick. (Pardon the pun) Believe it or not, our strumming arm can act as our time keeper and groove feeler. It is REALLY important to master this concept and adopt this perspective before trying to emulate your favorite strumming sounds. Why? Because all great rhythm playing has this concept running in the background! We're going to figure this out and then apply it to the rhythms we worked on last week.

Week 3 - Every Strummer Has An Accent

Oct 28th at 8:00pm EST

If being a human metronome is what makes your strumming solid, using accents is what makes your strumming interesting. This is where we learn to focus your strumming energy to different notes and different parts of the beat to make your rhythms come alive!

Week 9 - Freedom Strums

Dec 9th at 8:00pm EST

That's right! Once you 'get rhythm' you can strum whatever you want. Get in the groove and serve the song and you can't go wrong! In this session, we look at how to interpret other musical elements and make up patterns that compliment other things that are going on.
