Steven Curtis Chapman rulez! His songs are truly atypical or I would rather say differ from any other music I've listened to.
One of the very first songs of Steven Curtis Chapman I've listened to was Speechless. This song started-off humbly with a great guitar strumming and then followed by well-synchronized strings playing at the background before the drums and electric guitar banged in majestically.
There are a lot of guitar strums involved in Steven's song and personally I think his song can be a good practice foundation for many guitarists who wants to practice their strumming.
