    strange how I’ve always heard people saying it’s the elbow that should do all the work and NOT the wrist… I guess it’s up to personal preference.

    I am playing for about 7 months and you are the first person that actually learned me how to hold the pick and strum . Holding the pick natural with an angle as you said HELPED me allot . My pick is NOW not slipping thank you !!!!

    Why do you not hit all relevant strings with your upstrokes? I could use some good exercise tips on how to practice both downstrokes and upstrokes where all relevant strings are struck, without hitting any of the strings that aren’t suppose to be struck. i.e. Both upstroke and downstroke of an open D chord where you must avoid the E and A strings. I have yet to find such a lesson anywhere.

  9. joe doe says:

    If I mute the strings while practicing strumming, I can’t hear which strings I hit vs. which strings I avoided. So if I’m not holding down a chord, I just let the open strings ring and try to listen to which of the 6 notes sounded properly based on which strings I was trying to include. I hope that sounds like a proper strategy.
