    Down… down up (and keep on doing it)

  2. Fairlylocalemo

    You should totally put “My Boy” On here. It’s also by Billie. :)

  3. blueberry

    much much better in -2

  4. Just single down strums

  5. I find that if you do lose strums down, it sound really good

  6. Life would be so much easier if you could include the strumming pattern

  7. It’s just one strum for each I’m pretty sure

  8. Definitely not a hornet

    I just strum downwards and use DDU, UDU for the outro and stuff. I don’t know if that’s actually right though

  9. what is the strumming pattern?

  10. coolbeans15

Please 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 try to really "feel" the rhythm. Once you get the basics of strumming, I can assure you it'll go real quick. Maybe the strumming guide can help you on your way.
