In this lesson I'll show you a very basic way to strum with your fingers, which is similar to how you hold a pick, but it does have a slightly different sound.

Try and use this for our basic strumming pattern. It sounds nice, but notice that it's a gentler sound- you can't strum quite as hard and loud as you can with a pick, but it's really great for the more delicate strumming parts, or simply for the dreaded moment where you find yourself with a guitar and no pick.
