From Katie: So how do I start..Ok so I loved this book. .I just couldn’t put it down! This book has inspired me to want to play the guitar even more and start writing my own music. I have been learning to play guitar for about 4 and a half months now. I didn’t think there were people who felt the same way I felt when playing the guitar like so free and alive. this book showed me that I wasn’t so odd for feeling that. When I would be play on my guitar people would ask what I was playin I wouldn’t know what to tell them because even I didn’t even know what I was playing like Tripp says “I play what’s inside me” so now when they ask I just tell them “I’m just thrumming”. I just have one question about the songs. How does the strumming pattern go? I got the chords down but I cant figure out the strumming pattern to the songs. I would really love it if you could help me out.
Thanks for writing. I love that you now have a name for what you do and that you got it from my book: thrumming! Maybe it would be helpful if I posted a video for each song, showing what to do with the left hand. I’ll try to do that this weekend. Check back with this site.
