STOP Using "Canned" Strum Patterns...They're Killing Your Creativity!
If you have been playing guitar for a while, you might be noticing that your strumming is all beginning to sound the same…because you’re probably using a few “memorized” or “canned” strum patterns over the songs you play.
There is a much more MUSICAL way to learn strumming once you understand that there is a logical underlying structure to it.
This FREE GUIDE will introduce you to that structure…so you’ll be able to create your own STRUMMING SOLUTIONS that reflect the FEEL of a song. Intrigued?
At Dempster Guitar Studio we strive to help guitarists understand the connections of important musical concepts – concepts that many players may have often heard of but don’t necessarily understand how one well learned idea can help in learning another,related, idea more quickly and efficiently. You might call this process “Musical theory” but really it’s just the logic of building a strong musical foundation of ideas that enables you to better understand more complex ideas later – and most importantly, without feeling overwhelmed in the process.
In addition to raising the standard of general musical knowledge, we also place a strong emphasis on developing Rhythmic Awareness. We believe rhythm to be the most central quality of all music and as such deserves deep attention and training within guitar study. Doing this will help to develop all aspects of guitar playing.
We accomplish rhythmic awareness through a host of current and developing programs designed to enhance the student’s “Individual Lesson Experience” including workshops, song circles, jam sessions and ensembles. Essentially giving each student the opportunity to grow musically in a variety of fun and social environments in addition to individual guitar lessons.
