Watch the Soul Sixteenths online guitar lesson by Vicki Genfan from 30 Strumming Patterns You MUST Know

This pattern is a spin on the strum Bill Withers uses in his song, ‘Use Me'. The chords are Em7-A7. It's a truncated voicing of the Em7 with only the root, b7 and b3. Its syncopation makes it super funky and the 16th notes give it a lot of drive. So it's a great pattern to play in a slow tempo when you want to add movement.
