In this lesson, we'll stick with the same concept of the bass/strum technique, but alter it to accommodate 3/4 time, otherwise known as Waltz Time.

To play in 3/4 time, strike the bass note once, then follow that with 2 strums of the remaining strings. These three steps add up to one measure of music in 3/4 time.

Once again, we'll use the same chord progression in the key of A, but this time we'll be playing in 3/4 time.

Play this along with me and the band:
