1- Tensing and twisting the wrist while strumming
Strumming motion begins at the elbow with just a little movement of the wrist. The most important thing it to RELAX the arm and just have enough tension to hold on top the pick

2- Picking is a small motion that should be done with movement of the wrist only
Resting the wrist is optional, but I think it will help most people be more accurate with their picking

3- Putting chord fingers down one at a time
Try making the shape of the chord with your fingers before putting the fingers down

4- Not knowing where the beat falls and understand ‘ghost strums’ (hand movements that you don’t strum)

5- Not building a repertoire of songs

    Does the fella know that people’s chord changes naturally get faster as they learn?

  9. Michael King says:

    I never understood how people can play holding the pick like that..every lesson I watched as a kid when I was starting off stated you had to pick that way as well.I said no and learned to play just by pinching the pick between my thumb and finger , literally looks like I’m throwing the ”okay” sign but it works and it gave me a lot more control. For fast alternate picking I sorta have to do a mix of both tho, like half and half
