I tried to accompany your "Open up the Window, Noah" recording from Avalon (which is fantastic), and I can't get anywhere close to the strumming speed you guys are playing at. Do you have a lesson up that disscusses this topic? If not, could you make one? Every time I attempt it my pick gets all tangled up, and I fumble the rhythm almost instantly. Thanks!
Hi David, there isn't a lesson specifically on strumming quickly but that's a great idea. The basic idea is that you minimize the number and intensity of strums you play and lean more heavily on the bass notes. I'll put that lesson idea into the list of things to cover. Thanks!
By the way, I saw your show with JL in Dallas last night. Amazing. Hope you guys find more chances to come down.
