Strumming Pattern 1 Exercise

by IanM on October 7, 2011

In this video I teach you a simple strumming pattern that I like to call strumming pattern 1. Mind you, only I call it strumming pattern 1, so don’t go around asking people if they know strumming pattern 1 (unless they are people familiar with this site haha).

This simple strumming pattern can be applied to many different songs and this is one I will use quite regularly in song tutorials so be sure to learn it and get used to it as much as possible if you want to learn a heap of songs!
