The rhythm and blues pattern that you're about to learn uses the “A”, “D” and “E” chords but in a new shape. These chords have less of a pop sound and more of a blues sound. You'll use the pick in a downward motion and strum this pattern that’s used in blues, country, pop, rock, and jazz. No matter what genre you like there’s something for you!
