In this lesson I'm gonna show you a strumming pattern that you can never go wrong with, which is strumming the "back beats" with the snare drum on beats 2 and 4. It works really well if you're playing with another guitar player or a piano or organ player, but it might be too sparse if you're the only harmonic instrument. Check it out!
