For Examples 6 or 7: Strum all three strings while fingering any note, with one finger, on the first (highest pitched) string. Strum a steady beat, or a simple repeating rhythm, and change notes (randomly) every so often. It is a good idea to get several strums in on each note before you move to another.
With two people you can do this same thing, just synchronize the beat you are strumming It does not have to be the same rhythm exactly, as long as they are to the same beat. The simplest rhythm to start with is simply a steady beat, 1 2 3 4. With both people strumming to a common beat, each person can start to change what note they are fingering (yes, at random).
