Dear Friend and Fellow Guitar Lover,
In all my years of teaching guitar (which by now is over 25… feeling old today) I’ve learned that the most important (and most overlooked) skill my students can learn is to strum in time.
I mean, do you think Jimmy Page could have recorded the main riff in “Whole Lotta Love,” if he didn’t know how to strum in time…
… or would SRV have been able to play that killer rhythm guitar groove in “Pride And Joy?”
And while the intro to “Johnny B. Goode” is super cool at the beginning… that’s only the first 40 seconds of the song and it’s the other 80% that most people recognize.
Even one of the early rock and blues masters, Bo Diddley, shined the spotlight on the rhythm guitar with his hit song, “Who Do You Love.”
The bottom line is… strumming chords is the root of most guitar playing.
It doesn’t matter how well you can play scales and arpeggios, how many chords are in your vocabulary, or any of the other flashy tricks…
… you’ll sound your best if you can play rhythm with solid time.
In fact, I’ll go as far to say that keeping good time while strumming your guitar is not an optional skill…
… it is one of the most – if not THE most – important skills you will ever develop.
If you have ever wanted to accompany someone else who is singing, or you’ve ever tried to play with someone else and you wondered why it just never “clicked,” I can guarantee that your strumming and timing is the issue.
Fortunately, as important of a skill strumming is… it’s actually pretty easy to learn.
My name is Griff Hamlin and I’ve been fortunate enough to make a career out of playing guitar.
You might know me from one of my other guitar courses like Blues Guitar Unleashed, Beginning Blues Guitar, or Acoustic Blues Guitar Unleashed. Since going online in 2006, my courses have helped over 27,116 guitar enthusiasts around the world…
… and it’s people just like you that keep inspiring me to develop all these ideas.
The Real Story Behind Why I Created A Strumming And Rhythm Mastery Course…
I have to tell you about the Blues Guitar Unleashed Live events I’ve hosted the last couple of years…
Since 2011, I’ve put together an event for my Blues Guitar Unleashed students (only about 30 at a time… until I can find a way to clone myself… ) that focuses on a guitar master class, two blues jams, and a concert featuring my 8-piece band.
Well it turns out that the jams have got to be the most “talked about” events of the weekend… (students talk about it all year long on the forum…)
I bring the rhythm section from my band (Mark, Chris and Quinton) in to jam along with all the students in attendance for a couple songs each. Definitely a “once in a lifetime opportunity” for many people.
I can’t even begin to tell you how much I enjoy watching those students build up the courage to go on stage, play their hearts out, listen to the applause from their peers, and walk off stage feeling good about what they played… (you should have seen the improvement from the repeat attendees…)
… but I started to notice something peculiar about some of the basic things they were having trouble with …
So I actually asked them all (via a survey so they could take their time to think about it) what was their most pressing problem – the thing that kept them up at night wondering how to fix it in their playing?
And the answer I received by a landslide was simply – “timing, counting, and rhythm.”
So I got to thinking about what I could do to help them (and you) out… and decided a course dedicated to strumming and rhythm guitar was the next logical step.
So I buckled down and wrote out a simple, step-by-step guide to strumming and rhythm mastery… plus I recorded video lessons for the entire course, so you can actually SEE what I’m playing as well… to take you from strumming beginner to strumming master.
Let’s Take A Look Under The Hood…
All of the video and audio examples contain a slow speed version as well, so that it’s easier for you to get started with each new tune.
And while we’re talking about playing along with the recordings, don’t worry if it’s not perfect the first time… many of my students ask, “Should I play along with the track, even though I can’t keep up yet?”
The answer is… ABSOLUTELY!
If you could do it perfectly the first time, you wouldn’t need me…
Now, I’m really not here to try and convince you to invest in Strumming And Rhythm Mastery. Only you can decide for yourself if this is right for you.
I’m also not going to tell you that if you buy Strumming And Rhythm Mastery, you’ll be playing like Jimmy Page or SRV in 2 weeks. That’s just not realistic for anyone.
So if you are one of those guys who owns 20 different “how to play guitar” courses and they are all dusty on the shelf, then I can’t help you and you would be wasting your money.
But if you have 15-20 minutes a day to practice, and are willing to follow some simple instructions, then I can have you playing some really fun strumming and rhythm patterns on guitar… literally on the first lesson.
Strumming And Rhythm Mastery is just $117 for full and immediate access to all 19 video lessons, the dozens of play along tracks, and the complete TAB manual which you can download (or print, if you want... it's yours, after all 🙂
I challenge you to search the Internet the way I did for a step-by-step method of learning to strum correctly to just about anything. You’ll see there is nowhere else you can get the quality of instruction found in Strumming And Rhythm Mastery.
In fact, as always… I guarantee it.
