Watch the Driving Quarters online guitar lesson by Vicki Genfan from 30 Strumming Patterns You MUST Know

We're using solid quarter note hits on beats 1, 2 and 3 and then bringing in an arpeggiated picking on the top 3 strings for the rest of the measure using your fingers. Use your left hand muting for this one to make those first 3 beats tight and well articulated. With practice, this will become more natural - it's great to have the ability to use your fingers separately while also holding the pick!
