Here’s a guitar lesson for beginners on guitar strumming.
One of the most common things that I’ve heard from students is you’re having difficulties getting strumming down properly. In this lesson on guitar strumming, we’ll cover a very simple rhythm that you can use to practice your strumming, however I also talk about things like how to hold your pick, and a very important one… which strings to play. If you play the wrong strings, no matter how good your rhythm is, it will still sound muddy.
For instance, the D chord only uses the top four strings, so make sure you don’t play the 5th and 6th strings, or it really doesn’t sound good.
As always, leave a comment below the video and tell me what you think about it.

If you found this lesson useful, I’d highly recommend checking out Colin Daniel’s free series of lessons for beginners on strumming – you can find those here. I’ve heard great feedback from students, even just on the free series. He gets into more detail than I’ve done in this lesson here.
