This is the same pattern, using up and downstrokes with the pick.

On the count of 1, strum the strings with a downstroke, and let the chord sound. Use an upstroke on "and" while choking the chord, then another downstroke on 2, back up on "and" with the pick. Keep following this pattern, down on the numbers, up on "and" which is how you end the measure.

You may already be experimenting with other strum patterns, and there is still more that we want to show you about choking chords.
