In this lesson I'm going to show you a strumming pattern that I use a lot. It's pretty busy and works best with a cleaner tone. I use the term "meat and potatoes" for this kind of rhythm guitar part, because it's really heavy and solid. It's a really good one to know, and it also works in other styles of music.
