This pattern arpeggiates a C and D major chord with one pick direction for three notes (three strings) until you get to the fourth note at which point you change picking direction.
Why would Rice do this? The sound of the pick moving in one direction and then changing suddenly gives a driving rhythmic accent to the rhythm guitar part in the progression. It puts a kick in the music that wouldn't be there otherwise. Once you've got the pattern, try playing it any other way and it just won't sound the same.
Try this with any and every chord you know and see what this pattern does for you.
I find it quite easy (so far!) to navigate, and found the "where do I start" to be very helpful! I'm getting there!!
I LOVE the forum, too. I've never been one to use forums, but the GT forum is full of great people and helpful information at ALL levels! Congrats on a WONDERFUL site!!Good job!
