C                 G          Eb                F
It starts with an idea or an impulse to make a sound,
           C                 G                   Eb               F
And then a message gets sent to my head where my vocal chords are found.


       Bb                     F              C 
And they vibrate, and cause the air to vibrate too.
         Bb                     F                    G 
Then the air gets shot out of my mouth on its way to you!


C              G              Eb           F
This vibration I've just made travels as a wave,
       C          G                         Eb                F
But if I vibrated differently then it would cause the wave to change.


          Bb           F                     C 
If I sing low then the frequency of the wave drops.
          Bb            F
If I sing high then the frequency is high too.
                                        G 
And if I sing loud then my micro-phone pops!


    C                  G               Eb               F
The sound wave travels through the air unless it hits a wall
         C              G                       Eb                F
Then the higher frequencies get absorbed and the deeper ones pass through


               Bb                F                   C 
And that's why when I'm behind a window I sound like this.
           Bb              F                                       G 
And if the wall is hard the sound bounces back and you can hear an echo!


             C              G               Eb              F
The sound is captured by my micro-phone and sorted digitally,
           C                 G                  Eb                    F
That was until you play this video and now your speakers are mimicking me


            Bb                  F               C 
And now the waves are back and going into your ear.
            Bb                                       G 
Only 6 more steps inside your head until you get to hear!


C        G          Bb
Sound is touch at a distance,
F                  C         G              Bb         F
When they say that music can touch you, it literally does.


C        G        Bb
Sound is a vi-ber-ation,
    F                C       G                    Bb
But thanks to modern science we can know that it's shaking our eardrums:


Bb
And the drum then shakes some tiny bones
C 
And the bones send vibrations to a liquid
Bb
And the waves in the liquid bend some hairs
C 
And the hairs send a signal to the brain
Bb                                            C                 G 
And it's only when it forms a pattern in your head that you can hear!

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.
