This lesson kicks off a series that will introduce a few techniques that will beef up your strumming. This pattern fits many country tunes from many different styles.

The key to learning this pattern is rhythm. Our rhythm is punctuated with ghost strums, or strums where you complete the strumming motion but do not hit the strings within that motion. Our ghost strums in this pattern occur on the "and" of the one count and the three count.

Work hard to get this pattern under your fingers. We will use it and patterns like it in chord progressions in later lessons.
