Now let's try out our strumming pattern on a chord progression that only has the top 5 strings ringing. Let's keep it simple and start on an A minor chord for 2 bars, and then we'll switch to our C major chord for 2 bars.

Just for fun let's try it with a backing track, so we can hear and feel it with a drummer and a bass player. Remember that while the muting is always important, for right now it's most important to focus on the rhythmic feel of it all and locking in nicely with me and our backing track.
