Welcome to Live Lesson Wednesday! Where Campfire Guitar Star goes live every week at 8pm for a lesson/questionnaire. If you are catching the replay, make sure you join us next Wednesday for the live show! Bring any guitar related questions. Myself and Mike B are here to help you guys! Live Lesson Wednesday is the perfect time to get answers.

Today’s lesson topic is strumming. We are going to be covering a number of different techniques and styles. After you watch and practice all the content in this lesson, it is my guarantee that you will have a way better understanding of strumming.

We’ll get down the classic “Folk Strum Pattern” first. This is the most common strum pattern out there. It’s the perfect pattern to understand how to strum the guitar. We’ll also get down the more advanced “Slap Strum” technique. This one is huge. It will turn your guitar into a drum set. And after all, an acoustic guitar acts like a percussion instrument that can play notes when in a band setting.
