Just wanted to point you to my other Guitar Blog where you’ll find Part 1 of a series on getting out of your strumming rut. This is geared towards those of you who play guitar, of course, and Part 1 goes right back to the basics of strumming itself.
Many of you find yourselves always strumming the same pattern, no matter what the song, and this might inspire you to work at changing that. This post even has some flash animations showing you how to strum so you can play along.
Part 2 will be coming soon, so remember to check back in!
