    My initial thought was the strum pattern is quite difficult for a raw beginner, but then I recalled how I found learning d-du-udu not too difficult back in the day, so it's probably just my ingrained...

    It's possible I'm doing something wrong I guess, but my experience of the Behringer ADI21 is it sounds clipped. I guess my Shadow undersaddle passive pickup drives it too hard or something. It...
