More Rhythm Patterns
Things can get a bit boring if you are just strumming down strokes, or up and down half-beats. Let's try out some different rhythm patterns. A lot of the time you will still be moving your arm up and down in the same way, but it's where you don't hit the strings that makes it sound more interesting.
In each case I have shown where the up and down strokes go, and where to leave a gap, using rests.
