  • A problem for a lot of players is that the fast upstrum at the end makes it difficult to change to another chord. Resulting a lot of the time in the upstrum being all the open strings

The two notes at the end are "sixteenth notes". Each lasts half as long as the main notes in the pattern ("eighth notes").
