Watch the Strumming Patterns in 3/4 Time online guitar lesson by Susan Mazer from Hands On Guitar: Beyond Beginner

This lesson includes ten strums in ¾ time. Three beats per measure gives you a waltz-like feel. This time signature is used quite a bit in country music, but you’ll find it in all other styles of music as well. Both “Amazing Grace” and “Happy Birthday” are in ¾.
