  1. I like using -2 with a capo on the first or second fret.

  2. Jade Veggieballs

    worked great! its my cousins birthday and my mum wants to buy him a fish. HES 25! so I’m going to teach my mum this so she doesn’t embarrass herself. i found that the strumming pattern -down- -down- -up- works perfect until the end then i did
    happy birthday to you
    D D Am D
    -down, down- -up- -down-

  8. Not only does LOSER lack the ability to be civil, they lack the basic knowledge of simple grammar, such as the difference between the word your and you’re. If you have nothing good to say, or lack basic speaking and writing skills, then don’t be critical of others!
