This Strumming Techniques 2 DVD takes you into 16th note strumming which is a very common and very useful and cool way of strumming, especially in rock and pop. The patterns taught in this DVD are some of the most common ones played on guitar. You should have completed Strumming Techniques 1 or be confident with 8th strumming before starting these lessons. It assumes that you understand and can confidently play your 8th note strumming patterns and you keep your hand moving when you strum. This DVD moves at a faster pace than Vol I, and as well as showing you the patterns, I explain the 16th note count, how to break down the 4 notes in each beat and then how to make up your own patterns.
It’s important that you go through and make up some of your own patterns with this DVD, there are far too many 16th note strumming patterns for me to go through them all. So what we do is go through 24 of the most common patterns and explain how you can experiment with them. If you do some of your own study, it won’t take long for you to hear the patterns you hear in songs and work out how to play them!
