Strumming Patterns:
  There are no definitive terms for the various local-style strumming patterns, but I arbitrarily assigned "names" for ease in communicating. Click here for a .pdf file ( 1995 Mondoy Music) for a strum-chart.

Here's what they sound like:

Stately  







Andante







"U-te"   







Old-style chalang-a-lang  
"triple"






New-style chalang-a-lang  







Hawaiian cut time or Chang-a-lang  







Slack Key Picking
