  1. strumming pattern i guess

    heya. im just gonna say that I do single down strums on verses, intro and the instrumental. then ddu ddu dduudu for chorus

  2. for the strumming pattern, i find the pattern “DD” really easy and useful

  3. As someone new to ukulele it just helps. That is not a bad thing

  4. +5 is really easy!! ;))

  5. How can we replace D?

    • You can’t really replace it but if you just play the c,d,em cord slower and slowly take the speed up it becomes muscle memory. That’s what I did and it worked alright for me.

      Sorry if this isn’t much help, but good luck ?

    • you can not replace D

  6. People- LISTEN! You know you are not allowed to share strummingpatterns. Just listen to the song on spotify or youtube or whatever and use your ears to figure out what you think sounds good! Be a LITTLE musical. I really do not understand how someone who knows these tabs are not able to figure out strumming themself. It’s not magic. Just rythm.

    • People are just sharing what worked best for them

    • To annoy you

      I’m sorry…
      WhATS ThE sTRummInG PaTTeRN?!!!!?????

    • Penelope Christie

      Umm, some people are just beginners and maybe need a little help with strumming patterns, not everyone is as “advanced” as you. I’ve been playing uke for years and it’s still helpful when people share strumming patterns. What do you think the comments are for?!

    • Some people have trouble because they are biggers, I think that it’s ok to share strumming patters. We’re all just here to learn music and have fun. Try not to take it to seriously.?

      • Says you telling people that they can’t share a strumming patter that worked for them and are trying to help others “we’re all her to learn music and have fun” well let people have fun by helping beginners learn an easy strumming pattern

    • a PeRsOn WhO wAnTs The StRuMmInG pAtTeRn

      What was your intention of this comment?

    • what's the strumming pattern

      Dude, I understand it’s copyright, but seriously, you don’t need to be butthurt over it.

    • wwooooww

    • sUmOnE Is hEAtEd lmaoo. why tho.

    • I agree, I figure it out myself almost all the time and I’m self taught and have only been playing for a few weeks. It isn’t really that hard

  7. anyone else struggle with the speed? Lol!

  8. Strumming pattern – DDUDDUDDUUDU

    Verses: D D D DU
    Chorus: D DUDU

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.
