I agree, there should be included with the words/chords of a song, a strum pattern, as so many of the good lessons provide. It could be the correct one the artist uses, or perhaps a "suggested one" for the beginner (like me), who can't make out what the strum pattern is. It's particularly important in a song that has a few, and basic chords, and if a good pattern of strumming isn't followed it's hard until you begin singing to tell what the song is. For example: Knocking on Heaven's Door (Bob Dylan) is G, D, Am, G, D, C......."Black Boys on Mopeds" ( I found a lesson) by Sinaed O'Connor is G, D, C (and on both songs the G,D go for 1 barre, and the Am and C go for 2, but it's all about the strum pattern, in my opinion anyway....I just think a spot could be provided on the page for the strum, or even a picking pattern (such as Landslide, Good Riddance, etc. Anyway, just trying to make Chordie a better site for beginners and intermediates, as we all can't pick up music just by listening by ear. Thanks for listenening to me.
