MORE STRUM PATTERNS
All the strum patterns we have studied so far
have been one bar long.
These new strum patterns are two bars long.
They all have one thing in common – the last up
strum of the first bar is tied to the first
strum of the second bar. The counting is left
out – you fill it in.
Obviously this strum is used for chords that
last for two bars, but you’ll see on the next
page how they can be used for chords that last
1 bar each.,
Example 1. Rock Strum Number 2 extended.
Example 2. Rock Strum Number 3 extended.
Example 3. Rock Strum Number 3 Variation (a) extended.
Example 4. An example from “Good Riddance” by Greenday.
