Watch the Pop Strum online guitar lesson by Marcy Marxer from Ukulele for Guitar Players
The Pop Strum uses the pad of your strumming hand thumb for the down strokes and the pad of your first finger for the up strokes. The pads of the strumming hand give us a big, fat, beautiful tone.
The strum sounds harder than it really is. Don’t worry. Practice a simple Down Up Down Up strum for a while if it seems difficult to get started.
