    The Cup beat isn’t original either they just out two and two together.

  • Lukerdue3000 says:

    OMG BY BRETHEREN!!! ive said that all along especially since ive known how to do the cup beat for almost 4 or 5 years before pitch perfect came out…

  • Tahitian girl says:

    Does anybody have an idea about how to strum this song ?? I love it

  • Drice says:

    I am sorry I can’t give you the strum pattern. It is not allowed. But personally I just down strum to the beat of the song. And doing this helps me feel out the strum pattern.

  • abc says:

    okay yes but these chords were figured out using anna kendrick’s cover
    and when people go to look for it, they’re going to search for “cups” because that’s the name people know best

  • taylor swift says:

    i agree with abc by the way it sounds so much better if you slow it down a bit

  • ukulelelover says:

    you know, at the chorus the 1st “when im gone” should be Am, yes i agree, but the second one should be F and the next line Am again

    Taylor Swift is right. Slow down before you make crazy comments

  • obinja says:

    Actually it goes back farther than Lulu. It was a Carter Family favorite I believe.

Do not ask for strumming patterns. Sharing online how to literally play a song (i.e. strumming, rhythm and tempo) is not allowed by the MPA (Music Publishers Association) because of copyright issues.

Carefully listen to the song and "feel" the rhythm. Once you get the basics of strumming, it'll go real quick. Maybe the strumming guide can help you.
