it cries -like a baby- in a cradle all night.

  1. I just can’t play E…

  2. strumming pattern please?

  3. +5 with g instead of d is easier and kinda mimics the way Brian plays it on the guitar

  4. This is driving me crazy. The D is not right but I can’t work out what it should be. It needs to be lower.

  5. It’s easier is you use 2230 for the Dsus4 chord, as it stops the awkward chord change

  6. dirtybrotherkiller

    I personally think -2 is easier. The original probably sounds better but I literally can’t do it

  7. axe shreader

    I love it great power ballad.

  8. TheTalkingMuffin

    This song is great! The arrangement is perfect and matches the style of the song wonderfully! Not too hard either, but still helped me get a lot better!

  9. SeoulFulNicole

    This just made my day!!! Sounds great on a Ukulele!

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.
