    I changed guns in my head to tuns in my head. And I changed the gun still rattles to the sun still rattles.

    Question. Do I strum the cord when it shows the cord and only strum once or do keep strumming it until the next cord?

    • Crystal Condor

      I strum until the next chord, but im not 100% sure. What I do is watch other people covers and see kind of how they are strumming.

      (Not plagiarism, right?)

    • you can totally do either, just find a way that you’re comfortable with. sometimes a song will have specific instructions, but even those can be broken if something else works better for you.

    • JubeJube

      It depends really on the song. Normally you strum until the next chord but in lost boy at the start it is just 1 strum. so I recommend looking it up!

  5. ghost boy

  6. jamstarr21

    this is such an easy song to learn

  7. jamstarr21

    hello

  8. If you play F and then G at the end of the bridge, stop, and do a tap before jumping full-speed into the chorus, it sounds realy cool and builds up the energy :)

  9. I’m SO doing a cover of this

  13. oops, I apologize. I didnt realize I couldn’t ask for a strumming pattern. It won’t happen again.

  14. I am new to UKU. How do I find the strumming patterns? Also, someone told me that I can play along to the song but can’t find an option to.

  15. What kind of strumming pattern should I use?

  16. Really like this version!
