How To Transform The Most Basic Strumming Pattern Into Something Far More Exciting
Strumming all of the strings all of the time can sound pretty boring after a while. A great way to transform boring strumming is to try “Bass/Treble” strumming. This is a fun technique that you can apply to lots of your playing. It uses all downstrums and is fun! Take your time with it and enjoy! Get the TAB/notation for the lesson HERE.

Another great lesson Dan thanks. Where would we be without you…
Ace, super pleased to hear it, Angie. It is good fun 🙂
Sounds cool Dan and very Oasis like – I’ve only tried single string bass strumming before – I like the pattern as well. 👏👏
Glad to hear it, Pete. Yeah, it is a bit Oasis for sure. Pleased you are enjoying it! 🙂
So, I feel like WOW! It truly is all coming together I actually really can play guitar now! This lesson for me is easy. No challenges… at first… and I realized that these past few months Dan, doing DTAA has been the only reason I can play guitar! I am learning so much.

My point is that I am so… Read more »
Love to read comments like this! Really pleased to hear it and I love the enthusiasm. Also, nice to play with a glass of wine for sure. Pour yourself a big one to celebrate your progress. 🙂 Keep up the great practice!
This is really helpful and perfect for me to get more excitement, as you say, in my strumming. This seems to complement your lesson on accented strumming which I still practice daily.
Ace, so glad to hear it. Yeah, definitely some cross over with that one in terms of the accents. Keep enjoying yourself! 🙂
This is fantastic and well suited to someone like me that struggles with a pick even when strumming. This becomes index for bass and middle, ring, pinkie for treble.
Glad you enjoyed it! Nice way of adapting it, great work. 🙂
Dan I’m looking at the October lesson. I haven’t done the September lesson because I’m still working on all the basics. How can I access the September lesson?
Hi Martin, you can access and download HERE Enjoy! 🙂
Pleased to hear it, Jo. 🙂
New discovery 🙂 Simple but never knew these small tricks!
Ace, yeah, this is lots of fun! Glad you enjoyed 🙂
