So far in this chapter we've gone through the most common subdivisions used in rock and explored the sound of each of them with backing tracks, basic strumming and the anticipations. Now it's time to look at some hipper ways to strum these different subdivisions.

Each way to strum a subdivision is referred to as a strumming pattern, and in this tutorial you will become very familiar with this term. We'll break down and practice several different strumming patterns for the subdivisions, and we'll also talk about how to determine which one to use from what the drummer is playing.
