I'm only a few days old on this site, so pardon me if this is dumb. But I have an Acoustic/Electric Fender, and I am seem to just kinda suck with strumming patterns, and i'm looking for some help. I've hit the search button quite a few times, and I havn't found a video lesson to help either.
I've found all sorts of practices for fingering, bending, hammering,.... but nothing for strumming patterns.
Right now i'm trying to get two songs down. Pink Floyd's - Mother, and Indigo Girls - Closer To Fine.
Anyways, I'd appreciate any advice. Feel free to IM me on AIM (serpentine ocean).
You're not alone Serpentine. I have been on GMC for a few months and altohugh the lessons are great, I feel I am missing it due to not having a strong foundation in Strumming(I can get by but I want to learn those funk strum styles that are sometimes used in rock), so I have actually taken a step back and am working on strumming these days. I too have not found a great web source for strumming but I just bought Kris' Quick Start Guide DVD(freelicks.net)which claims to have a lot on strumming stuff so we will see. Unfortunately the drawback on learning on your own is you haver no one watching over to make sure you learn things in the proper order to make it easier.
