Scotty's Strumming lesson comment

Great input. The basics cannot be overlooked. I've made a 'career' out of playing from the basics.

Becoming a great guitarist has less to do with fancy moves than it does becoming a master of the basics and learning musicianship.
It's not what you can't do. It's how you play what you already know.

I was trying to do your strumming pattern of down ups and noticed you aren't playing the same down ups as on the page - throwing in some double time D U D U D U or something every now and again on the last beat of the bar. Am I hearing correctly? Maybe that's what you were playing in the video demo if I remember correctly. Fancy but good, and very skillful. If I'm ever able to play that as well as you do I'll be able to say I can strum a guitar.

Sorry - only just saw this response - it is possible that I changed it as I tend to just play what I feel like or hear at the moment - much to the chagrin of some of the cover acts I have worked with.
Will check it out and let you know.

PS and there isn't a video - was I dreaming or have you removed it?
PPS I was thinking of the vid for your Holding a Pick lesson.
