The strumming pattern is very simple. If you listen to any studio version of this song, you'll notice that he (Christofer Drew) plays each note once and mutes it quickly after. So starting on the word "Trouble" you play down then mute. The strumming goes at a slow pace, and I can't really explain it so I highly recommend listening to the version of the song you want your playing to sound like. At the part where he starts singing the "Oh oh-oh oh-oh oh-ohhhh Oooooh I'm running my mouth just like I got her" (if you can understand what I'm talking about) It's pretty much a matter of giving it a swing-y beat and playing whatever strumming pattern feels right. Personally, I play a pattern that goes along the lines of DD UU D UU D U UDU with a very syncopated rhythm. This is a basic "skeleton" of the pattern, you can play any pattern you want as long as it fits.
After he sings "Let's hope not" You're going to play the chord, mute it, then knock on the wood of your guitar three times. On the third set of this, knock twice.
You're going to keep repeating all of the rhythms above in their respective places.
On the last part of the song ( the "Oh oh-oh oh-oh oh-ohhhh Oooooh. Oooh ooooh oooh ooh") you're only going to strum the chord once.
Honestly, it's kind of a listen-and-learn pattern. If you haven't already listened to the song, DO IT.
Can you please tell us the strumming pattern for this song?
