The key to learning percussive guitar strumming is to be able to shift through the rhythmic gears. When you can do this then you can double the time and add percussive flourishes [al la Al di Meola] to your right hand strumming.
Start by counting the quarter note and then move to the eighth note and then up to the 16th note.
The next grouping to contend with is the group of 6 notes called sextuplets.
You can count 1 2 3 4 5 6
or you could break it up into 16th’s as in,

In order to get 16th notes in quick succession it is essential to count them as:
1 e and a 2 e and a 3 e and a 4 e and a
Mixing Rhythmic values:
The next concept is where it all falls into place. This consists of mixing up the rhythms and creating double timing patterns for percussive effect.
