Strumming Patterns

Posted on October 1, 2020

A tool to build strumming patterns. This is just for building out some rhythm to play with, not for properly composing music.

This tool uses abcjs for score editing. You can view the abcjs markdown directly here.

Strumming Blocks

Click a block to add it to your strumming pattern. Each block corresponds to 1 beat in a measure.

Version 1.8.1

Future Goals

  • Support other time signatures
  • Add support for direct editing of the ABC markdown
