I realize that this kind of right hand precision can be very tricky when you're first starting out, so in this lesson I'll show you how to use a metronome to work on it.

I hope you've had fun with this tutorial on root-5 strumming. Because this is a very tricky technique at first we've used some very slow tempos for the examples. However, Country music can be very fast at times, so it's important that you take the time to get really comfortable with this technique. Of course you don't always have to play the root-5 strumming, but as I'm sure you've realized, it's a very powerful sound and it really pays off to have it under your belt. Have fun with it!
