I immediately tried to apply this to other strumming patterns and that was a bit of a mess. I wonder if mastering it on the basic eight note strumming is the key before moving on. Curious what others are up to?

Welcome to the community :grinning::guitar::notes:
I am only on grade 1 strumming so not able to help I am sure others in the community will.

Yeah, I did the same thing. Got it going pretty good for basic eight note strumming but struggled to make it work for other strumming patterns
