The next strumming pattern that I'm gonna show you is a very powerful one. The "upbeats" are the eight notes in between your 4 beats ("One AND two AND three AND four AND...") and if you strum those you can drastically change the feel and sound of what the whole band is playing.

For example: If another player in your band is taking a solo, try to play this part the 2nd time around, and you will make him look like a million bucks!
