Essential Guitar Strums Course
– with Mark McKenzie Part 8
“The Blues Would Be Nothing Without This Strum”
Developing a good swing strum is one of the hardest things to do when you are learning it for the first time. But I’ve come up with a revolutionary method of teaching it that is going to blow your mind and have you playing perfect swing strum in just a few short minutes.
The swing strum is used heavily in Jazz, Blues and Country music. That’s because it follows the shuffle feel developed by the early Jazz and Blues musicians. If you want to hear the shuffle feel being used in a few songs, then check these out:
- Come On in my Kitchen – Robert Johnson
- Muddy Waters – Manish Boy
- Black Friday – Steely Dan
