I thinks he's just adding to what your right hand can do. some of the stuff we do is without thinking. and we get those habbits by going over those techniques repititiously. like keeping out left hand low to the strings, etc.

so, I think he's just trying to "mix-it-up" for you. and I would also recommend, puting extra effort into the stuff you don't understand. go over those things an extra 10-20 times.

if he tells you to rob a bank, or something you know is wrong. well, question that, for sure. but if he's asking you to do guitar stuff, just trust that theres some good reason. and some that you won't understand for years. just learn them anyway.

does that make sense?

the rhythm pattern you suggested was

l llll

a quater note followed by up & down strokes on eighth notes. This is a 3/4 pattern, and a good one. But I suspect that what he suggested was

l llllll

which would be a 4/4 pattern and much more useable. This pattern would be played:

dn dn-up dn-up dn-up dn-up.

Looks like you're suggesting a 5 beat pattern. Maybe it's a typo?
