Anybody else here cuz of pride

You are all doing the strumming wrong!
I figured it out!
And it’s not that easy as you’ll all think.

Strumming in my interpretation for (almost) each line. Each chord is separated:
DDU|DDU|DUD|UUDU

Verses
1st, 3th and 4th line DDU – DDU – DUD – UUDU
2nd line DDU DDU – DUD – UUDU (2x F)

Chorus
1st, 2nd and 3th line DDU – DDU – DUD – UUDU
!!EXEPT at the Gsus4 (love) and G (you).
You strum each chord once up!!
4th line F DDU – C DDU – F DDU – C- DDU –
Gsus4 DDUUDU – Am DD (slow)

Intro and interlude used chords: Am G C F
Each chord just a simple DDU

The final chorus is up to you ;)
Just follow the strumming above, mix and match. Have fun!

Melissa

I love this song

Tropical Uke

For those of you wondering, for the strumming pattern I just do one down stroke for each of the chords. I think it sounds more dramatic that way. Hope it helps. :)

Wowuke!

For the first three lines, it sounds really good if you slowly pick each string . Also use it on ‘like a rainbow’

Wowuke!

Such a great song ! I love it.

Tom Cabanski

Gsus4 is just add your pinkie on the last string to g. Super easy.

Victoria

That is awesome!! Here I was trying to do it the other way!! LOL :) Ty

Maggie

What strumming pattern should we use

Mon

I’m pretty sure it’s “I see your true colors” as she’s does, not “I’ll see…” like she thinks she will.
Also the second verse isn’t just “whispers” it’s “show me a smile then, don’t be unhappy can’t remember when I last saw you laughing…”

-5 and 0 are the simplest for and me and I think they sound the best
