Hi guys, I was wondering how do I determine the strumming pattern of a song if there is no guitar in it.
make up your own based on the rhythm and whatever the other instruments are palying.
Well, if its classical music, you might consider the time signatures so like DUN..do do DUN doo do DUN doo do DUN and strum on the DUN, Although that would be a waltz sorta pattern.
I personally create my own patterns based on the sung, if its a slow type song i have one pattern for that. I have my own patterns that i use for different song types wether they have guitar or not.
Okays thanks a lot.
It takes some time, but after a while when you listen to a song, you can figure it out
It's all about the Beat of the song
Try to make it match the accents. Up and down strums sound different and you can play them hard or soft or in-between.
