In Episode 4 of Sunday Strum, I focus on strumming power chords four different ways.

Utilizing these four variations while keeping the rhythm the same will yield different vibes each time.

While the changes are simple, they may get you out of a creative rut or even help you to learn a song more accurately.

The rhythm I chose to demonstrate this is just a measure of eighth notes in 4/4 time.

Keep in mind, these variations can be applied to other patterns as well.

Feel free to experiment with different chords changes and rhythms as you get the hang of it!
