Downstroke Practice Tune Breakdown

Now that we've practiced the mechanical, mathematical and musical elements at work in this strumming pattern, it's time to use it in a musical context. We'll do that with what I call a “practice tune”, which is a little song I come up with purely for the purpose of this lesson. It'll have a simple intro, a verse a chorus and an outro.

Hello, thanko you for this lesson. when you were playing C chord, there is this ">" symbol above the TAB, what does it mean? Thank you 4 months ago

That is an accent, so you would play any note or chord aligned with the accent slightly louder or with more emphasis.
