*Sample strumming* This is the recommended strumming for the intro. You only play the
first measure (the first box below) once at the intro and everytime you switch from a
different set of chord changes into the Cadd9 Em7 Asus G chords of the verses. So Play
the second strumming part i wrote out over and over for the verses and the first part
only when
you switch into a verse.
you play this holding the chords that are written out except that you don't really strum
through the whole chord. i wrote out the parts of the chord that i play when i strum.
also, in between almost everytime that you switch from one chord to another chord, you
strum a chord not written out where you ONLY fret the 3rd fret of the E and B strings. That
change is written out in the strum pattern as 0033. This is only a rough guide you can
be a bit sloppy with the actual strings hit as long as your rhythm is good.
