Lesson 5 - Strumming Exercise 3 - 晴天 by 周杰伦

The 3rd strumming pattern is also another modification to Pattern A1. It is another variation to make the later part of the song more lively. It is usually used for parts of songs where one chord last for the duration of 1 Bar. We shall use the song 晴天 by 周杰伦 to demo.


In this exercise, note that:
1) Intro at Line 1 and 2 use Plucking.

2) Intro at Line 3 and 4 use the new Strumming Method Pattern A3.

3) Verse 1, 2 and Pre-Chorus mostly use Strumming Method Pattern A1 for simplicity.

4) Most of the Chorus use the new Strumming Method Pattern A3.

5) The new pattern is base on the Pattern A1 except from 3rd Beat onwards are all different strokes.

First, let us look at some new chords:




The above strumming exercise is using the below general pattern:

This pattern can be applied to the songs stated for Pattern A1 like 安静 by 周杰伦, 海阔天空 by Beyond, Sometimes When We Touch by Rod Stewart, 纯真 by Mayday, 爱如潮水 by 张信哲 and many, many more of such genre!
