Watch the Fancy Strum online guitar lesson by Marcy Marxer from Ukulele for Guitar Players
The strumming I call Fancy Strumming emulates the pick flourishes that a tenor banjo player might use. Why let them have all the fun? The Fancier strums were the magic of the Vaudeville stars as well as Hollywood and British Musical Review Stars.
Look for Ukulele Ike videos for more examples of Fancy Strumming. Another great, one of the greatest of all ukulele strummers was George Formby from Great Britain. George had an unbelieveable right hand. He didn’t just play a song, he propelled a song. Look for more Fancy Strumming in my Sherpa Classroom right here at TrueFire.
