I hope you enjoyed Basic Strumming Patterns for Beginners Part I from last week. If you got those strumming patterns down and you’re ready for Part II then grab your guitar out of the stand and let’s get your skills to the next level.
Today I will show you another five important strumming patterns in 4/4, 3/4 and 2/4 time. Mastering the patterns of Part I & II will get you by playing most common pop, country and rock songs. These are the fundamentals for guitar strumming.
– Take your time to practice each pattern thoroughly
– Practice the patterns with the chord progression
– First practice slow and then gradually build up speed
– Listen to your favorite songs and figure out the appropriate strumming pattern.
– Practice the patterns daily!
“Knowledge is a treasure, but practice is the key to it.” ~ Lao Tzu
Thank you Klaus

Have fun strumming!
very nice. like the way you show the strumming patterns by counting and also with just the up/down arrows. while i can extract and save the patterns by capturing the screen images it would be nice to have them all collected in a pdf. nevertheless, these were very useful strumming lessons. thanks.
Excellent. This I was looking for.

I really liked this video. Later on you use clocks to demonstrate one of the strumming patterns and the chords popped up on screen. It would be nice to know what chords you were using for yellow and zombie as well. I’m sorry I couldn’t make them out from the video. I’m a real newbie.
Amazing video….it’s really helpful
