Holding the Backbeat

Holding the backbeat on your strumming pattern creates a hole for another instrument to accent the backbeat. Learn more!

I’ve been really enjoying these backbeat lessons. I’m practising this one with “Have you ever seen the rain” which seems to work well - although I think on the track its muted rather than held - looking forward to trying that after the next lesson!

Keen to know of any other good songs to try this with?

Not all ‘actually use it’ but you can apply it to many more too! :slight_smile:
