This example is also similar to page 1, but we've changed the third beat. Instead of a quarter note, we just use the same pattern as in beats 2 and 4. The result is an emphasis on the up strokes on all the beats except the first. The basic pattern looks like this:

Set your loop count to "Forever" and try to strum along. If it's a struggle, slow down the tempo and re-play it. If it feels good, include just the groove in the playback and play along with just the groove. Try increasing the tempo if everything's cool.
