Thanks for answering. So how do you chose and use a strumming pattern? Lets say given the example above, lets say you use 1/8 pattern of D - DU - UDU. Do you just break this in half?
That's a good place to start. Like Roger said, you need to be familiar with the song. Typically if each chord is 1 measure then your strum would coincide with that.
Example: Take your D DU UDU that you had. Assuming that it is a 4/4 song, your strum would count, 1 2& &4&.
D DU UDU
So that strum would be a full measure. Strum this pattern once thru for each chord.
Hope that makes sense.
