Anyone can master strumming.
Are you frustrated with your strumming on the guitar? Well, you are not alone. Whether it’s those pesky upstrokes getting stuck in the strings, feeling like you will never be able to play fast enough to keep up with 16th note strumming patterns, or just feeling like your strumming is a little dull and lifeless. We’ve all been there at some point, but there is hope.
Anyone (yes, that includes you) can master strumming if you have a system to ensure a solid foundation in technique, speed and timing.
