Beyond Strumming is written for guitar players who want to do more than just strum along, and want to expand their repertoire of accompaniment styles. It is the ultimate guide for any guitarist who wants to go beyond playing the same patterns in song after song, and create accompaniment parts that are more dynamic and distinctive. Topics covered include developing bass lines, arranging with a capo, melodic riffs, and more. Different styles of songs are covered, and both standard notation and tablature are used to present the material. Video downloads are included with the purchase of the book – great for expanding your musical toolkit and developing fresh and varied guitar parts to make songs shine!
