I believe that strumming is probably the most overlooked skill on the guitar…

So in this short video (really short… like, under 4 minutes short) I’ll show you a simple way to add some percussion and rhythm to the simplest of strum patterns.

      I learned a song just two or three days ago that uses this technique. I had a lot of trouble doing the slap and staying in time though so as I’ve been playing the song I’ve just been skipping the slap. Then this video shows up this morning to confront me with my mediocrity 😆. So tonight during practice I’m going to work on this until I get it right. Thanks!
