In order to listen to the strumming pattern, Andy will take you through the strumming pattern he uses to play the song. To demonstrate the pattern effectively you will see the pattern played using muted strings, followed by the actual chords…G…D….Am…..G….D….C.
The pattern being played (D= downstrokes and U = upstrokes)
This is a relatively easy pattern to master and so, along with the easy-teach technique, should become embedded into your muscle memory (or brain as Andy likes to call it – no class!) relatively easily. This means it becomes much easier to add more accents and “little embelishments” to make the song sound more interesting…
