Hey All! It’s a beautiful day to play the guitar, isn’t it?

So…this video is similar to my last one in that I discuss how many beginning guitar students learn how to play a few different chords on the guitar…but are unsure about what to do with their right hands. I personally did not know how to strum when I first started learning guitar at 12 years old, so I know what it feels like to be unsure!

In this video I am going to show a basic strumming pattern, using an alternating thumb and fingers. I will show you how to do it with a G, C, and D7 chord, but once you get the pattern down you can use it with all chords!
