One trick I found that helped to learn the shuffle, was to tap the scratch plate with the pick after the down stroke, so using the one-trip-let, I done down-tap-up.

Another general tip: Always keep your strumming hand moving in some way. Don't hold it still when your not playing a note/chord (this often leads to rushed hits too early or late on the next beat). Either do the whole movement without hitting the strings or "suggest" (not sure what the correct english term is) the strum. Those won't always be possible or useful at higher tempos but help you keeping a steady rhythm at slower tempos and to get the hang of a pattern.

Watch Justin right hand in the beginning of this song to see what i mean.

I generally find that doing the shuffle at 50 BPM is harder than 70 BPM. It's one of the only cases where slower is not easier.

The first part of the video justin points his fretting hand fingers towards him.
Later on when he explains it more he is pointing more to the ceiling.
Is there one good technique or can you apply both?

Michael

By flattening the fingers, you mute the strings you don't want to ring out. So to start with you'll be more worried about cleanly fretting the two notes and just hitting the two strings. Once the tempo ramps up you're like to stray onto the strings below. By lowering the fingers you mute these.

Comes in handy when when you move onto the Blues Rhythm Course, where you play the same 12BB fast, strumming ALL 6 six strings but muting the 4 that shouldn't be ringing out. As usual Justin is building a foundation here for future progress/courses/development.

Cheers

About the right (picking hand). Are you supposed to let it touch the bridge* for support or does it float? Can't tell from the video. 

*crappy auto correct :p

Depends if you're the groom.

Depends if it's pre or post wedding.

There's not really right or wrong here imho

Some rest on the bridge
Some anchor their little finger on the body below the thin e string
Some float

Try to see what works for you
