In this lesson we'll use the same strumming pattern as the basis for our new twist on this country staple. Sometimes it's not coming up with new patterns that make a song, it's how you play your old patterns. This lesson will spice up this pattern using a muting technique that adds a percussive backbeat (the beats 2 and 4) to the strum.

Take this strum slowly and really internalize this muting technique. It is a must for every country rhythm guitarist.
