It's time to put your skills to the test. We've learned strumming patterns for open chords. We've learned how to use power chords in country music. It's time to put them together.

This can be challenging the first time you do it. Strumming open chords uses mostly all of the strings while playing power chords means limiting your strum to two or three strings at the most. Combining the two will show you how to shift the gear to go from one to the other.

This riff is a great modern country example that uses this technique.
