3.2 Adding a Bass Note video

Tunefox Guitar Lesson #3

In this lesson you'll learn the second step to playing rhythm guitar - adding a bass note before your strum.

You are going to learn how to add a 6th string bass note before you strum. The pattern goes like this - bass, strum, bass, strum. Although your right hand has to be more precise for the bass note, make sure your wrist is still loose. Exaggerate the motion for this exercise and practice dropping your wrist and hand through both the bass note and the strum.
