Whoops! Sorry Dweez! Didn't mean to go all Tommy Emmanuel on you!
Of course, I meant fingerstyle strumming only:[i][quote]Fingerstyle strumming strokes
Some of the many possible fingerstyle strums include:
A slow upstroke (bass to treble) sweep with the thumb. This is a sforzando or emphatic way of playing a chord.
Light "brushing" strokes with the fingers moving together at a near-perpendicular angle to the strings. Works equally in either direction and can be alternated for a chord tremolo chord effect.
Downstrokes with one finger make a change from the standard upstroke strum.
A "pinch" with the thumb and fingers moving towards each other gives a crisp effect. It is helpful to clearly articulate the topmost and bass note in the chord, as if plucking, before "following through".
Rasgueado: Strumming typically done by bunching all the right hand fingers and then flicking them out in quick succession to get four superimposed strums. The rasgueado or "rolling" strum is particularly characteristic of flamenco.
Turning p-a-m-i tremolo plucking into a series of downstrokes. This is a lighter version of the classic rasgueado, which uses upstrokes.(wikipedia)[/quote
Long may you fingerstyle strum!
