Driving Bluegrass Rhythm: Medium Tempo With Fills
In this series of guitar lessons I will show you how to add the fills to the 16th note boom chick strumming pattern with the ghost strum. Fills are several notes used as a transition between chords, and I'm playing these using only downstrokes. I covered a 1, 4, 1, 5, 1 progression in the key of G.
This tutorial on driving bluegrass rhythm was inspired by a good friend of mine in the forum. I'm using only downstrokes with the pick for the fills, but using up and downstrokes for strumming. In the first lesson I used the fills to walk into the 4 chord, then back to the 1. In the next lesson I walk into the 5 chord, then back to the 1, and the last one is the full progression.
