    I find it hard to follow the above 7 strumming paterns,..BECAUSE,..only the up/down patterns are written out on the video,.. But the 1&2&3&4& ,timing patterns are NOT, at any point, written out,..May I suggest that the lessons would be much easier to follow, IF,..along with the up & down strokes being written out,..that the COUNT,..of 1&2&374&, should ALSO, be written out,.directly ABOVE the up & down notation,…So that we viewers, will know EXACTLY, where the up & down strokes fit into the 1&2&3&4& pattern,..In short, the lessons, gives ONLY the ORDER, of the up & down strokes, & virtually NO information is given as to HOW the ups & downs, fit the 1&2&3&4& timing, & we viewers are left to try to figure that part out,..by just listening,..I also suggest that the written information, should STAY, on the video, & not DISSAPEAR, after a few seconds,..
