How To Strum The Guitar – Beginner Guitar Lesson #7
I’m giving away The Ultimate Guitar Toolbox right now!

Welcome to the seventh video in the Beginner Guitar Quick-Start Series. In this lesson Nate covers essential strumming hand techniques. He provides some guidance on how to find a comfortable grip for holding the pick, and then covers practical tips for staying loose and relaxed while you play the guitar.

Strumming is a foundational element of playing rhythm guitar. Not only will these tips help you establish a solid foundation for future playing, but they will also help you reduce the risk of injury or fatigue that can slow down your progress.
