Who should learn this skill?

Using downstrokes and upstrokes correctly by matching them to downbeats and upbeats in music.

Primary Concepts for This Skill

  1. Most guitarists with strumming troubles, actually have timing/rhythm problems.  Getting clear on timing and rhythm (and the use of down/up strokes is the most common “fix”).
  2. The best way to develop as a good strummer is to strum with a beat (or metronome) while paying close attention to using down/up strokes on down/up beats.
  3. Getting to the point where you can strum guitar intuitively, requires building a muscle memory with down/up strokes – then one can strum intuitively (just like tapping your foot to music becomes intuitive).
