Thank you Erich! The words of encouragement throughout your videos are really helpful. I find strumming difficult because I am trying to sing at the same time. Things can get discombobulated. Lol

Thanks Erich for another great lesson!

Productivity. I have issues of up strumming. It shows improvement just a few minutes practicing with the method of this video.

Liked your video. One recommendation…I was sent here by your Ghost Riders in the Sky video to get the rhythm. It was a good video, but didn’t give me the rhythm for that song. Maybe you could have quickly given the rhythm in the video or in the text below. Thanks!

counting and learning the difference between up and down strokes
brought it together for me….now its a matter of
doing more of it…with the help of starting slow and steadly
Building the speed…..thank you very very much…..
You are an excellent teacher!

you helped a lot, thanks

How can I download the video (Video #2 Strumming) to be able to watch it later, easier?

found the strumming lesson very helpful, the area I seem to be having issues with is keeping the rhythm going…will this just improve with practice, as with most things?

I’ve had a guitar for many years, no lessons, just tried to play by tab books after work when I im dissabled and as you can see a awful speller amnd typeist. hope your vidio helps me with my guitar however the typing and spelling is hopless

Thanks for the great lesson. You explained it so well !

very good lesson, particularly barre chord finger arch

Not worrying about a chord lets me concentrate on the rhythm. Also the tip about the.53 pick is helpful.

Thanks so much Erich – I have been having some difficulty with strumming particular songs – this will really help :)

I think you have come so far from when I started watching you, this has gone up so many levels you are by far the best. the time you take all the things you do you are really great and I’m glad to have made you my choice and taken this journey with you.

feeling more confident already

Erich, I just recently started watching your videos on youtube. I think your an amazing player and wonderful teacher you keep all of your lessons fun and entertaining. Its amazing how much ive come along with my playing because of you thank you for being a cool guy and sharing the knowledge that plenty of people have yet to figure out about this beautiful insrument.

I have been looking for a “Plan” to start my guitar journey. I need a plan of attack. I didn’t want to feel like going to the gym and just randomly using different machines and throwing whatever weight on the machine. I want a course of action to get better.

Great video!… Thank for reminding me about the pick gauge!

Having had a stroke Eric, I find video’s #1 and #2 extremely helpful in my rehab. I play them over and over to exercise my right hand and arm. These video’s and you are a God send, and I do mean it! Thanx Eric.
