Hi fellow Music Lovers,
I am not done yet. Indeed, I am going to travel tomorrow to spend my Christmas holiday and I am still packing my stuffs. But, because of you (all of you) , I want to share some more before Christmas and do one more post in this Christmas and New Year series.
This is part 3, if you have not check out part 1 and part 2, click the following:
Okay, let’s jump to the lesson today. Today is all about guitar player. I am mainly a pianist. (I play piano much better than playing guitar)
It’s gonna be a quick and short lesson.
The number one rhythm pattern to use on 90% of songs
Today I am only talking about one thing – the most popular coming pattern to use on guitar to accompany singer or other instruments.
Break into 16th notes
This is how to count the 16th notes: 1e&a, 2e&a, 3e&a, 4e&a (you all probably know it)
The pattern is hit the strings for the chord on 1 , 2 a , e &, 4 & a
And at other times you only do the motion of picking but without hit the strings
This is it. This is the most popular pattern for comping on guitar.
Let try it and roll with it. Have fun.
Before leaving today lesson, I am going to share something that you can do to learn to play Christmas song.
You just type How to play Christmas songs on guitar on Youtube. Boom there are hundreds of them.
I just did a search on Youtube and I found the following two video which are actually quite good.
