Watch the Slow Funky Latin online guitar lesson by Vicki Genfan from 30 Strumming Patterns You MUST Know

I'm playing Gm7 - C9 in this very sexy, latin feeling groove. The first two strokes come on the down beat of 1 and 2, giving the pattern a solid, grounded feel - but the next two strokes give it the syncopation as they come on the up beats of 3 and 4. Finally, the pattern ends in the 2nd measure with two more solid strokes on 3 and 4.

Played at a slow tempo this is really funky. As you speed it up it will sound more jazzy.
