Here are some basic Key concepts to remember when mastering rhythm skills, and practicing strumming.

 

  • Mute the strings lightly cover the strings with your fretting hand.
  • Strum down, up down. The Down motion or down strums are the numbers in the exercise.
  • The up motion the “And” is the “and of the beat”. The “and of the beat” will always be an up strum. This is the key to good strumming.
  • The strums should be the same distance.
  • Always count to keep good time. (out Loud at first)
  • Don’t forget the “ghost note” your hand should stay in motion, just don’t hit the strings. On the exercise when there is open space that is the ghost note.
  • Remember your down strums are always on the down beat, and you’re up strum is on the upbeat.
