I have just started playing and i have trouble with counting while trying to concentrate on the right chords.I was thinking it would help me in creating a good strum.What are your opinions?
It most definitely would. It's much better than your internal clock because it's never wrong. Sure you'll get some people on here saying it'll make you sound mechanical blah blah. But if you want to start right, get a metronome.
**** that. Go with feeling.

Okay fine, I'm just the devil guy on your other shoulder but I had to give my opinion.
