This question already has an answer here:
I used to play silly led zeppelin and velvet underground covers. i knew all the vu strumming just because i knew the records by heart. i've started to get more into classic folk and country and nick drake stuff.
is there a good list of strumming patterns/techniques or video because none of the resources on google have really helped me so much
edit: i'd also really like to understand more of the theory behind finger picking too, a bit more than basic progressions and stuff, like why would i choose to play something like that, if that makes sense... if anyone can recommend another book or link
i have some old folk books from the 50s and 60s (and 00s), they teach how to play the classics with basic picking patterns but don't really extrapolate
