This helped me to get how to Strum, and I have been watching over and over both videos trying to get it.

Really like your videos thank you … I’ve been playing Guitar a long time I’m going back over the basics Your instruction technique is very good and easy to understand.. thanks again JB

This helped me on the strumming. Also never thought to use anything but a medium pick. Duh

been “play at” guitar for years and have struggled continuously. Just recently decided to learn the guitar for “Real”. And have finally understood the concept that Masters are Masters of the Basics – thank you for the review. My technique is now growing in leaps and bounds – thought realizing that everything takes time, I am now one my way to becoming a master guitarist, thanks

seriouslly thanl yo! I never had anybody make me understand and count beat and up beats. I took me less than 24 hours. Thahk a lot! Graet work!

I must say your lessons have helped me tremendously, I want to watch all your videos

I think I need to figure out the strumming pattern first and then use the bss notes ??

Eric , what can I do when I am already using a kinda tapping each stroke , should I quit tapping and playing a bass note

Played guitar for a while but have been stuck couldn’t find any lessons to help me as much as these are helping thanks

your slow an patient instructions do magic in beginners like me.
Long life!

Your way of instruction is like no other, it’s what I’ve been missing to keep from sounding too mundane in my guitar playing. Thank you for helping your subscribers (me) get a chance to view guitar the way you see it. Your explanations are very informative. Since I just found your website, 3-4 days ago, I can’t imagine how much better of a player I’ll be if I treat your information like ‘school’; staying with it, practicing, visualizing and becoming that versatile player I’d like to become. I’m just tipping the iceberg on all your instruction. It’s vast, but oh so important! Thank you.

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?
