Hi,
Regarding when he's playing the alternate strumming (kinda like Status Quo Rockin All Over The World...),
can you confirm if he's playing stacatto with his fretting hand?

Thanks  :)

Hi folks looking for some help on this one. In the DVD lesson Justin suggest the focus should be on :

5. Play with alternate strumming, playing all strings but muting all the ones not part of the riff.

and I'm having a few issues when adding the 6th interval with the pinkie. No problems when alternate picking/strumming the active chord strings (E+A or A+D) but I keep catching the bottom of my pinkie on the e + B strings when strumming all six. I'm probably doing this when just playing the "bass" power chord strings but they're obviously not strummed.

Any tips on how to get a clean / muted sound without my pinkie accidentally fretting the thinnest strings.

Cheers

Toby

The old "cheat" method - practice. Start as always by just putting your fingers down slowly and holding them there to get the feel. Then practice slowly moving them there and so on. But you probably know all that anyway. And if you're doing the blues rhythm guitar course you're serious about playing!

Thanks Fox but I've moved on a good way since posting that question. But as you say I slowed the whole process down to get things sounding clean and then slowly brought the speed up. Don't even think about it now. And yes I am pretty serious about making progress despite being long in the tooth.
