Introduction To Strumming For Beginners
Learning to read rhythms is way easier than you might think. In this PDF I’ll show you the basics of reading rhythms.

Basic Rhythm 01

Basic Rhythm 02

Basic Rhythm 03

Basic Rhythm 04

TIP: Count along and TAP your foot. Use a metronome where possible.

Basic Rhythm 05

Basic Rhythm 06

              These rhythms will help you get into the swing of things so to speak. Tap your foot along with these
              rhythms. When your hand goes down your foot will tap on the floor. When your hand goes up your foot
              should be in the air. Also make sure you count out loud as your playing. All the downstrokes will be on
              the Beat e.g. 1, 2, 3, 4. The upstrokes will be counted as “and” e.g. 1 and 2 and 3 and 4.

Visit the website to hear these rhythms in action. If you’re a beginner then you might want to check out this Beginner
Acoustic Guitar Series out. You can download an 18 Page Color Quick Start Guide PDF and all the lessons have an
accompanying video lesson as well.
