Strumming Pattern Practice Tune

Now that you've hopefully gotten somewhat comfortable with the basic country strumming pattern at different tempos, let's try and use it in a simple little practice tune. For the first section, let's call it the "A-section", we'll start out by just playing full strums and letting the chord ring for 2 bars. Then after 8 bars of that we'll go to the next section, let's call it the "B-section", and for that we'll use our strumming pattern for 8 bars. Each section happens twice and then we end the practice tune on a big E-chord that we'll let ring!
