Strumming Patterns playing chords together
Now let’s look at some rhythm patterns and some chord rotations.
Try to follow these strumming patterns.
C F G7 C - Down Down Down Up Down Up - Down Down Down Up Down Up
C F G7 C - Down Up Down Up Down Down – Down Up Down Up Down Down

The following chord rotations are to give you an idea of which chords work well together. The strumming pattern in the tab is not the same as I used in the video, it’s a simplified version, but the chords are the same. So try making your own strumming patterns for the following with a bit of guidance from the tab.
Dm A C G
Em C G D
Up Up Up Up – Reggae - Palm Mute
