Adding Suspensions to Your Strumming

OK, so let's put in all together in a typical progression. In the example below, our progression is:

E - D - A - A

In the first beat of every measure, we hit the corresponding major chord solid, and then we jack it up a bit by sticking in the Sus chord halfway through the measure. I suggest getting the strum and the chords down, and then turning off the main sequence, and just playing along with the groove. You'll be a strumming genius in no time...
