Em, Am, D, and G chords - Advanced Strumming

Alternating Bass with the Bum-Ditty Pattern

Now that you've gotten your basic switching down for all of these chords, it's time to add in the bum-ditty pattern.

This chord progression is slightly different than the previous lesson to encourage you to practice switching in a different context. First, take a look at the progression and strum each chord once. If it helps, say each chord out loud when you play it. Once you have the progression in your head, try adding in the bum-ditty and alternating bass pattern.
