I’m currently in the module where you learn the G chord and I’m a bit confused about strumming patterns.
I’ve heard Justin mention that you can try a couple of different strumming patterns when playing the songs during the final 10 minutes of a practice session, but I’m confused about how this works.
I’m using the video that comes with the premade practice routine and it, for example, shows that I have to play a C chord on the first and third beat of a bar. So this means you have to strum 1(+2+)3(+4+), not sure how to write this down but between the brackets means you don’t hit any strings.
To mess around with other strumming patterns do I just follow along with the chord changes each bar and strum whatever pattern I feel like playing?
I feel like the answer is probably a very obvious “yes, of course that’s exactly what it means” but somehow I want to make sure.
