The Rhythmic Grid – Guitar 1 Start Out Jammin’

Beginner Guitar Book and DVD

In teaching people strum patterns, the main obstacle I run across is to get out of what I call the “shopping list” mode. I’ll come back to that idea in a second. A lot of beginner books will show “down” and “up” strums for the basic patterns, but somehow manage not to communicate the rhythmic…
