Now let's explore a simple way to strum with just your thumb. In the previous tutorial we explored what it sounds like when we isolate what the thumb is playing within the basic finger picking pattern.

Before you move on to the next lesson, make sure you take some time on your own to practice this example at whichever tempo feels comfortable for you. And as always it's extremely important you don't try to rush any of this and develop a bunch of bad habits because of it.
