This article is for those who

・want to know the basic patterns of the right hand.

・can play some chords, but I don’t know what to do next.
・don’t know how to practice after I can play chords.
・want to know the basic patterns of the right hand.

I will explain the basic patterns for the right hand.

(1) A brief introduction to basic right hand patterns

There are three basic patterns for the right hand.
i) 8 beats
ii) 16 beats
iii) Arpeggio
There are many other ways to play, but for now, I think it is a good idea to learn the three first.
To get a feel for them, I think it is best to listen to them first, so I will introduce each pattern.
I will play the same chord progression


but you will get a very different impression from one pattern to another, so please listen and compare.

(2) 8-beat strokes

This is the most basic pattern.

(3) 16-beat stroke

Let’s compare it with the 8-beat stroke.

(4) Arpeggio

This is a slightly different system, but it is a technique that is often used.

Among these, starting with the 8-beat stroke will help you get a feel for the right hand movement, so I will explain how to play the 8-beat stroke in the next article.
