Chords and Strumming

There is more to hearing chords than just being able to pick out the notes.  Ideally, you’ll want to be able to create your own chord progressions.

A chord progression is more than just stringing a few chords together.  There is a lot of rhythm involved.

And that rhythm is created with your strumming.

Being able to mimic the chords and progressions of musicians you like will go a long way to helping you develop your own style.

To that end, being able to tell the difference between a down strum and an up strum will help you immensely.

A down strum tends to sound heavier than an up strum.  Listen closely to the examples and see if you can tell the difference.

Play in the Key of YOU!
