Start with 1down 1up, then 2down 2up, 2down 1 up 1 down, 3down 1 up 1 down and so on... whatsoever combination u can make. go with slow n then strum hard/hammer or soft, riff as u bump.
best practice to dig a strum pattern is to find the beat of song. try tht on ur lap or butt. one on one side is down n one or other wud be up. two consecutive on a side wud be 2 down or 2up. Do putup any off ur kick ass no.
