Hi guys, i'm trying to learn this song... and I just cannot figure out this darn strum pattern, I have looked all over and no one has it, they just say "figure it out" and I cant... :reallymad:



- Here's the actual song.





You guys helped me out a ton and i'm really starting to get this, my fingers are getting a lot more confident and i'm bending strings and all that fun stuff. But I still have trouble trying to "hear" the strumming patterns...

I believe it goes... DDDDUDUDU, but then there's other crap and I just can't figure it out! If someone helps me, I will love you forever. Thank you, and God bless.

Also, is there a site were maybe you could find strum patterns for songs? Or do you have to just always figure them out by ear?

I think it sometimes depends on your own particular strum accent.

I think it would be D D D, U U, U D D

or/sometimes D D D, (D) U U, U D D with the (D) being muted.

Pretty much like this. Separated by bars. 140 BPM

DDDDU - UUDUDU - DDDDU - UUDUDU - DDDDU - UUDUDU - DDDDU - UUDUDU.

Hope that helps.

Happy Holidays.

dairo,

Did that work for you ? Somehow, I must have missed the love part. :tongueyes:
