Hey UU Team, wouldn't it be sweet to make a lesson about Strumming Patterns. What Strumming Pattern to use when playing jazz, blues, reggae, rock, oldies etc..
That would be awesome.

A strumming exercise would be nice. Just muting the strings and practicing rhythms would be a good idea. I just make it on my own right now but seeing some examples might be cool.

Thanks for the chart KOkonutz!!!

1. What is the diff. bet. a capital U/D and a lowercase u/d?

2. What does the number stand for on top of each D and U?

3. What does the + sign mean?

I think I get it, just want to make sure before I get going on this... thanks!
