muted strumming lessonMuted Strumming 1 by Peter Vogl is a downloadable rhythm lesson for acoustic or electric guitar. This video is designed for beginning to intermediate players that feel trapped by using the same strum patterns repeatedly. Muting the strings with the left hand allows you to really focus on how you are strumming with the right hand. Peter will use this exercise technique while teaching you 10 different strum patterns.

This is the first step in progressing towards creating and improvising your own strum patterns. The download includes a Quicktime video and a .pdf with notation for each pattern. $5.99
