AE: Waltz

Area of Expertise : Waltz

Waltz patterns are organized in groups of 3 and can be applied to common time signatures like 3/4 and 6/8 or to less common ones like 9/8 and 12/8. Simpler waltz patterns were covered in the L5: Triples and Triplets section. To earn your AE Waltz patch demonstrate four of the strums on this page. At least one strum should be demonstrated in the context of a song. The other three patterns may be demonstrated with a chord progression of your choice. You may also demonstrate all four strums in the context of one song. Demonstrated strums should keep a consitent beat with no noticeable pauses between chords. Please refer to the strumming shorthand guide for any unfamiliar symbols.
