This technique is used frequently by players as diverse as Neil Young and Willie Nelson to more modern players like Dave Matthews and Damien Rice.
At first you may feel a little bit awkward having your hand come down and make contact with the face of the guitar while you strum but it will become second nature to you very quickly.
Try to listen for this technique being used in a lot of the acoustic music that you listen to.
No TAB for this lesson because I am just holding an E Major chord the whole time and concentrating on the rhythm. But after you get the technique down, start applying it to actual chord changes and various right hand rhythms patterns that you like. Just remember to always make the downstroke a percussive hit.
Don't punch a hole into your guitar!!
