I would say he is using either i or m (or both) when doing the downstroke instead of the thumb.

But... what do I know?

RE: strums (in reply to itoprover

This is a technique that i also need to work on. I've seen both guitarists that accompany at the dance class i go to use this. I remember talking to my friend about it and he pretty much described it as being thumb up and all other fingers down. you don't bring your fingers out but rather keep that hand position and use your wrist to complete the motion. so your hand stays fixed in an almost closed fist, you hit the strings only with your thumb on the way up and only with your other fingers on the way down...by way of a certain position/ angle on the strings....while only moving your wrist.

if i am wrong please correct me, because I'm in the process of learning this technique as well.

Guys.. have you ever played with a pick?

Go grab one, strum a few chords for 10 min and then do the same thing but without the pick.


Bam! Instant "that stuff on the video"!

P up and I or MI down. I suck at it myself but it's super vital to good baile accompaniment. Being able to control it well, accent wherever you want and move in and out of it from other rasgueoseaeaes.

RE: strums (in reply to itoprover

Jose Tanaka used P up and IM down (there's a lesson on it on his website)..
I've been taught P up, IMA down..
Best way to train accenting ,is triples.
ONE two three, ONE two three with a metronome, first time roung would be the down(im,ima) then the next time the accent would be an up(p),
Most importantly is to do this without speeding up the accent.

thats the way Ive been taught by my teacher.

Yeah, it's P-up and two or three fingers-down. For the down stroke, I would experiment with every possible combination (i.e. IM, MA, and IMA), just to see what feels good and what possibilities each opens up with regard to sound.
