Our new free lesson, Famous Strum Patterns 2, will teach you how to play the strum patterns and chord progressions of four popular songs. We’ll start with Wild Horses by The Rolling Stones. This is a classic acoustic guitar ballad and should be pretty straightforward for you to play. Next, we’ll get a little funkier with the rhythmic strumming of Sitting, Wishing, Waiting by Jack Johnson. Tequila Sunrise by the Eagles will incorporate a Spanish flair in the strum pattern. Finally, we’ll learn a country strum to go with Follow Your Arrow by Kacey Musgraves.
Once you feel comfortable playing along with the video, try applying these strum patterns to your original chord progressions. You can also check out lesson 1 to learn four more songs.
