Strumming With Soul: Strum the guitar with technique, passion and power (eBook): STRUM More Naturally, PLAY with More Passion, GROOVE with Better Rhythm, LEARN More Songs

by Dan Thorpe

This guide will you learn how to strum the guitar better than ever!

If you`re a guitarist who wants to strum like a pro, wants to learn more of the most popular strum patterns that you can use over and over again, or has trouble getting a clear, quality strum sound from the guitarâ?¦

`Strumming With Soul` has the solution.

STRUM More Naturally

PLAY with More Passion

GROOVE with Better Rhythm

LEARN More Songs

Do you find that you:

Would love to play the most common strum patterns used in rock, pop, indie, ballad, country music, and more?
Lack a natural feel for rhythm?
Often hit unwanted strings when strumming?
Want to play guitar in the styles of Oasis, Johnny Cash, Green Day, The Red Hot Chili Peppers, The Beatles and moreâ?¦
Have a sloppy, unprofessional strumming sound?
Want your strumming to have a lot more soul, passion and joy?
If so, then this course was made specifically for YOU.

In `Strumming With Soul`, you will learn the specific, step by step techniques that I have tried, tested and tweaked on over 100 students in person.

Get the basics mastered once and for all

You will learn the 6 fundamentals:

The essential fundamentals of strumming that most people neglect (and regret later)
The very common mistakes of strumming that are holding you back
A true, thorough understanding of rhythm – things such as whole, half, quarter, eighth, sixteenth notes – and most importantly how to play them in time
How to practice to a `click` or metronome so you will always be `in time` with yourself, the band or backing track – all of the time
What `power dynamics` are and how they are the simple secret that only the pro`s really use
The 8 basic strums that you can call upon for ANY situation
Once you have the fundamentals sorted it`s time to truly kick on and have a LOT of fun with the guitar.

It`s time to learn the core strumming patterns that most guitarists never really learn. The truth about strumming patterns is that many guitarists just wing it.

They listen to a song and try to replicate that strumming pattern. Experienced guitarists do this all the time.

What if I told you, we can leap frog these guitarists?

Well, now you can because in this section of the course you will learn some of the most popular strum patterns of all time that are used for the majority of music out there.

Leap frog even experienced guitarists

When you want to learn a song, all you will have to do, is listen for the strum pattern, and within about 3 seconds you will recognise it as one in this part of the course.

Once you know the chords, you can apply the strumming pattern and boom you are away, while all those experienced guitarists are kicking there heels in the background.

Here are just some of the powerful elements of the course.

Simple Strums That Sound Sophisticated
The 3 essential methods to proper fingerstyle strumming
The Must Know Super Flexible (and Super Common) Strums
Classic Bass Note Strums That Add Lots of Flavour and Power to Your Chords
What `swing` is and how to add it to your strumming
Contemporary 16th Note Strums That Will Impress Your Audience
4 very stylish swing strum patterns for a unique sound
Learn songs and riffs that use the strumming patterns taught in the course
and much moreâ?¦.

Enjoy the journey from beginner to intermediate guitar with your strumming. Even some so called pro`s don`t know how to strum like you will be able to at the end of the course.

In my opinion, when most guitar teachers teach the guitar, they don`t spend nearly enough time teaching you the little things that make the instrument sound so good.

They show you the basics and move on. So much of what makes the guitar so special is the little things that no one really talks about.
