Learning how to properly strum a guitar and learn guitar strumming patterns is a crucial part of learning how to play guitar. The right strumming pattern can make a huge difference in how a song sounds/ feels. Often the strumming pattern is overlooked when learning how to play guitar. When you learn how to play a new song on guitar, you should first start with learning the chords and figuring out the timing of the chord changes. Once you know when to change the chords and you are comfortable playing them on your guitar, then you should focus on the strumming pattern.

The secret to learning the right strumming pattern for a song is to first understand how to count the beats in the song. Most songs are counted in groups of 4 (called quarter notes). A group of 4 is one bar. A strumming pattern will be how to strum the guitar with a mixture of downstrokes and upstrokes that will fit into that bar. So once you know a guitar strumming pattern that fits into one bar, technically you can use that same strumming pattern to play any song. However, some strumming patterns will sound better than other strumming patterns because of the “feel” of the music and what the other instruments are doing. When you are choosing which strumming pattern to play on your guitar, you must listen to the other instruments to determine which strumming pattern will fit the best. You should learn a handful of strumming patterns to play on your guitar so that you have some alternative ways to strum the guitar. Once you know how to play a few strumming patterns on guitar, you can try each of them and see which strumming pattern best fits the song.

The guitar chords used in this lesson are G, C, Emin and D. These are easy beginner guitar chords that sound great together and are used to play many of your favorite songs. You can see how to play these chords in this lesson –
