But this style is discussed to help inform the users’ analysis of how to play guitar and contrasting it with something more simple like just Down Strokes. In general a reggae type strumming will probably go best with playing more a rhythm guitar. Overall Common Strumming Patterns is just another section of the site trying to help people trying to learn guitar increase their cognition and intentionality of using their hand that makes the string vibrate.
