I know there are lessons on here on strumming but I am trying to find out if there is a generic strumming pattern for country music, I am thinking about strumming along to "folsom Prison Blues" or "your my best Freind" by Don williams.

I thought struming would be easy but do you still need to count 1234,1234 etc, IF this is too basic for you expereinced guys, spare a thought for me, I have been playing about 2 years. I appologise but I hope I can help others out cos I would love to strum more than pick, When I try and play to the record It sounds dreadfull.
