The unique feel of the jig rhythm is a vital part of Irish and other standard music. It’s a fantastic, fun groove to play on acoustic guitar and one you need to master for attending sessions with fiddle players, for sure!

In this short acoustic guitar video lesson, Elixir Strings artist Flynn Cohen breaks down the best hand jig rhythm strumming pattern, with its double downstrokes, in easy-to-follow style. It’s a stealthily basic sounding feel, however one that will take some training of your right-hand man to play smoothly and strongly. So as always, start slow and exact prior to constructing up speed

Flynn has tried the others and now uses Elixir Strings exclusively for his guitars and mandolin because of their long-term tone! Take a look at our products:
