When I wake up, well I know I'm gonna be,

When I come home- When I come home -, well I know I'm gonna be
          A              B                  E

E
And if I grow , well I know I'm gonna be
          A                B                E
I'm gonna be the man who's growing old with you

    Would anyone know what’s the strumming pattern?

  2. Tona sanchez

    What’s the strumming pattern??

  3. What is the strumming pattern?

  4. +3 is pretty good

  5. I get that on -4 and it´s easy and sounds great ;)

  6. mojopolo321

    I use +3
    :)

  7. Original tab sounds great, +1 sounds a bit weird unless you stress the A string on the C chord. I do +1 because E makes my wrist cry. Thanks for a great tab!

  8. vuricktingle

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.
