In Topic: Help me on strum pattern, Please?

27 September 2007 - 08:02 AM

By listening to the song I would come up with:

1-2-3-4-1-2-3-4-1-2-3-4-1-2-3-4-
C-------Am------F-------G-------
D-DUD-D-D-DUD-D-D-DUD-D-D-DUD-D-
or
D-DUDUD-D-DUDUD-D-DUDUD-D-DUDUD-
whereas I would add a B single note on the 4th count so:
C-----b-Am------F-------G-------

Sorry, HTML does not make align so nicely :-(

Spot on :-)

Depending on my mood I find myself either strumming or fingerpicking some of the songs I play. Or combine during one song to give it an easy quiet start and some spice in the chorus.
And by playing around with strum patterns and/or fingerpicking patterns you give the song you play your own personal character. Believe me my "Smells like teen spirit" whilst fingerpicking has a completely different effect than the original :-) But still I enjoy it :-) and that's what counts in the end.

Bad part is that I'm now in between moving to a new house and temporarily live with my parents-in-law. Nice, but somehow building up my homestudio there does not sound so feasible.

Instead of GAS I do suffer after reading a lot on this forum from FART (For Always Recording Tunes) and want to set it up and record new stuff this weekend.

I guess that why they call it accompanying guitar :-) BTW, for sure there are also a lot of musical pieces where the piano/keyboard plays something completely different than the melody line of the singer. Just imagine Clocks by Coldplay and wonder how the piano and the lead singer part follow a completely different pattern!

Meant to say nice part of the world:beer:

Was already busy figuring out what that philosophical sentence meant :-)
It's indeed a nice part of the world, but our world is so big that it contains a lot of nice parts... like yours!
