Definition for: Ghost strum

A strum in which the hand does not strike the strings. Done to maintain the rhythm of a strumming pattern while reducing the number of strums. This way, guitarists still move their hand in the same way, just purposefully miss on the ghost strums to create a more complex pattern.
