Hi there awoodfield,

Funny you mentioned fast playing! We recently put a blog post highlighting some super fast songs. One of the best ways to learn is through learning songs so I recommend checking out "Blue Mountain Rag" which is the first song in the blog post here:

For a more general look at fast strumming, check out Anders' rock strumming 16th notes lesson here:

I hope that helps!

If you have any questions, comments, or concerns, please contact us.
