Watch the Funky R&B online guitar lesson by Vicki Genfan from 30 Strumming Patterns You MUST Know
I'm playing barre chord versions of a C#m-G#m7-Bm-F#m7. The first two eighth notes are single note bass hits. The first note is very short and staccato. On the last stroke of the pattern we're also using a combination of strum and mute with the right hand palm.
Notice the main accent of this pattern is on the 2nd beat.
