“The 6/8 Strum Opens Up A Whole New World Of Possibilities”
I call this the 6/8 strum because it follows the 6/8 time signature. This particular strum is widely used in rock ballads and Irish Celtic music.
If you’re looking for some good examples where this strum is used, check these out:
- Arthur McBride – Irish folk song covered by Paul Brady, Bob Dylan and others.
- Elderly woman behind the counter in a small town – Pearl Jam
