“BUSKING” / “TYPICAL ROCK” STRUMS
Fast Song Strum 1.
This strum is important because it is the BASIC
WRIST MOVEMENT of all strums. The regular
down and up movement is used in all strums. By
using this continual down and up movement you
are becoming your own built-in metronome. All
strums use this movement but sometimes you hit
the strings and other times you miss the strings.
When doing the up strums you only have to
hit 3 or 4 of the high strings. There is no
need to try and hit all the strings
You must always count to make sure you know
whereabouts in the bar you are, but you move
like a metronome.
Fast Song Strum 2.
Your wrist will move like it did in strum number
1, only you miss on the first up movement.
A good hint is to whisper the “&” of count 1.
