Description

In this course, you will learn how to train your strumming hand effectively and develop a deeper understanding of how to strumming works.

With over 350 consecutive levels, you can train the independence of your strumming hand in a fun and playful way.

Just follow along with the videos to gradually develop your strumming skills.

I recommended you practice an average of 20 minutes daily. This will boil down to 1 to 5 videos a day. If you have more time at hand, of course, it is awesome if you practice more :) If you follow this plan, you will be a confident rhythm player within 3 weeks!

In over 3 hours of video lessons you will learn to master:

  • Downstrokes

  • Upstrokes

  • Playing any 8th notes or 16th notes position independently

  • Popular chords progressions

  • Popular strumming patterns

You will also get access to lots of downloadable content such as all the Rhythm Guitar Charts - Strumming Hand Training Book and click tracks for your personal practice.

This course is also very good if you are stuck with the same strumming patterns for too long and you are looking to deepen your understanding of playing rhythm guitar.

My name is Thomas and I am a certified music teacher (Bachelor of Arts degree, University Mozarteum Salzburg). I have taught hundreds of students at public music schools in Austria, Switzerland, and Liechtenstein and I am fortunate to have private students from all over the world.

Over the years of teaching, I discovered a very easy and effective way of teaching rhythm guitar. I believe in a playful learning experience and, for the first time, I am putting out this system in this online course.

Press play and practice along with me - it is that easy :)

Who this course is for:
  • Beginners who want to understand how strumming works
  • Anyone who wants to deepen their understanding of rhythm and strumming
  • If you want to become a solid rhythm guitarist
  • This course is beneficial for any style of music
  • Guitarists or Ukulele players alike
  • Guitarists and Ukulele players who want to train their strumming hand
  • right and left hand / strumming hand training
