I need some help with some more folky sounding strum patterns. I like down, up, down, down, up, down, a lot but it is basic and does sound good over and over. Thanks

Hmm.

Swing
1&2&3&4&1&2&3&4&
dUdUdUdUdUdUdUdU

1&2&3&4&1&2&3&4&
d-dU-UdUd-dU-UdU


Put these in a mono-space font to get the correct spacing.

What kind of folk? Irish folk seems to sound pretty contemporary (like allen said), but mediterean folk is more like bass, staccato treble, rest, bass, staccato treble, rest and so. Than theres 100 other types of folk for each nationality and culture.

Yeah, I got the Irish folk down. Haha!

Also, check... music.download.com Listen to some of those artists there, and adopt their strum styles.

Irish, english, scottish, some american. I just meant that sort of anglo style of folk.

You'd never see that kind of music being played at one of my exteneded family events though...
