Strumming 2

Animated Strumming 2 tab by ActionTab on guitar. So easy you'll be playing in minutes.

This exercise is from the Strumming section in Core Skills.

Now we strum the E major chord using downstrums and upstrums. Notice the Directional arrows within the strumming Dots. The strumming strokes follow a repetitive down / up rhythm. Again, we use only one chord so you can concentrate on your strumming hand.

Watch the introduction video for more information and pointers about downstrums and upstrums.

Loop the ActionTab and play along with it in unbroken rhythm. See if you can get as fast as the normal speed audio. Next we look at varying strums....
