I might have mentioned it in the past but this is very important so I’ll write a few more words about it.
Strums give the chord progression a structure and they give the chord progression groove.
That’s why they are so important! think about the strums like a really good drummer , he/she will give you the groove and they will stick with it ! at least until the end and the segment… verse chorus etc…
So there are about 20 strums which we will learn first, they are very common and you can find them in a lot of songs.Once you have memorized them try to apply them to some new songs.
This skill might be difficult at the beginning but it will be forth it down the line trust me.
As always any questions feel free to write
