Continuing an emphasis on rhythm, this intermediate level episode recaps some basic elements of building a strum, and how to find the support rhythm for every tune. This leads into selective strumming with demonstrations of various tunes throughout.
For May 2022, the focus is on rhythm for all skill levels, starting with beginners. Bing goes into detail on the fundamentals for strumming. This includes where to strum and why, pick selection and grip, cadence exercises and playing actual tunes.
