Re: strum

I make it up.  I also frequently adjust the melody to fit my strum pattern in a sort of descending spiral away from sounding like a cover. 

It's also helpful to listen carefully to covers of songs you'd like to do.  Especially if you can get the original artist and several covers.  You'll get an idea for the 'meat' of the song and still stick with that while personalizing the rest.
