Watch the Voicings with Strums online guitar lesson by TrueFire from Play Acoustic Guitar 4: Rhythm Approaches

Voicings with Strums - Applying Technique #6 is a video guitar lesson presented by Vicki Genfan and is sourced from Acoustic Rhythm Survival Guide.

This strumming pattern involves picking alternating bass notes and in between those bass notes strumming down and up, once each. Notice that when I strum down after playing the bass note (root) on these chords I am doing a very 'slow' downstroke so that you actually hear each individual string sounding one at a time... this is a subtlety and will really give you a great 'feel' – see if you can master it and then play around with making that downstroke slower or faster – all while keeping solid time!
