Watch the Pop R&B online guitar lesson by Vicki Genfan from 30 Strumming Patterns You MUST Know

This pattern is based on the funky R&B pattern we've done, but I've added a bass line. I'm using the same chords as before, C#m-G#m7-Bm-F#m7. Once you get it down, see if you can come up with your own ideas for making that bass line move and connect chords. I've used 8th notes, but try some 16th note lines and hammer ons. It's particularly funky when those bass notes are a bit muted with the right hand palm.
