Percussive Strumming Patterns Guitar Lesson Description:
In this percussive strumming patterns guitar lesson video I'll show you how to add that percussive smack to your playing.
This percussive "smack" serves as kind of a snare drum sound placed on the 2 and 4 (aka the backbeat).
You'll hear players like John Mayer use this percussive strumming technique all the time.
Adding a little percussive sound to your strumming patterns or fingerstyle patterns can be very rewarding.
Even one tiny, additional sound element can really fill out the overall feel to make what we're playing sound more full and self-supported.
