Never underestimate the power of good solid strumming! This song is a great example of that. The main rhythm guitar part of "I Heard It Through The Grapevine" carries the groove on it's own for 90% of the song and is solely based on the good ol' eight note strumming. But it's not as easy as it sounds; you gotta get the groove nice and swampy, get the voicings right and hit all the anticipations without changing the feel of the groove.
