Activity 1 – Trading Fours

We are going to strum 4 times in a row and then rest for four beats. (Remember that resting means that you don’t play for four beats.) Play along to theĀ drumbeatĀ to stay in time together.

You could try splitting the group in half – one group plays four strums and the other group claps the four rests.

You could also try with the second group strumming back like an echo.
