Hi, I’m completely stuck in the strumming pattern for I’m yours. Would it be possible if someone could write it down ie. Up, Down, Chuck, up, down, Chuck.
It would be greatly appreciated as it’s driving me insane.January 5, 2021 at 6:44 pm #43572
Check out this video for a more in-depth look at it. But the strum pattern follows the golden rule: strum down on a down beat and up on an up beat. Meaning:
Down for beats 1, 2, 3, 4

That’s amazing Andrew thanks.
I’m stuck on the intro though I can’t work out the pattern and if your muting, chucking or tapping. It sounds so good I have to learn it 🙂
Sorry to be a pain but if you could just explain the intro pattern.. thank you.January 5, 2021 at 7:41 pm #43586
Let me know if this video answers it – I get asked for help with this song a lot and have a lot of private videos, but I can’t recall what I talked about in all of them lol.January 6, 2021 at 12:48 am #43589
Perfect 🙂 Thank you for taking the time to post this.January 16, 2021 at 3:45 pm #44049
I just wanted to give an update and say thanks 🙂 I’ve been a member for a couple of weeks+ now. When I first signed up I did not fully understand the value of all the tools/support.
The little tips such as striking the fret board with your thumb transform the sound and in a million years I would not have learnt that (even from YouTube).
My biggest oversight was the tool for looping the bars (online tab player). I spent most of the day trying to work out from the video the first two bars of the verse. I just couldn’t get it (even thought it was explained thoroughly). I sat down for 5 minutes this evening and looped those bars at 50% and i understood exactly the timing after that.
Honestly I’m completely out of my depth with this arrangement but I actually believe I can learn it with enough determination and the tools/tips/lessons provided.
Thanks for everything. Greatly appreciated.January 16, 2021 at 5:38 pm #44050
That’s so awesome to hear, Jay! I’m excited for your progress. Anytime you need help or have playing questions, let me know 🙂January 19, 2021 at 3:04 pm #44076
I have a general question. I can pick the melody notes with my thumb. But in the verse I’m using my ring finger.. it’s a lot clearer /cleaner. I was just wondering if this is a bad habit to get into or if I should continue with what works…January 19, 2021 at 6:11 pm #44083
I think that’s fine 🙂January 31, 2021 at 4:54 pm #45115
I’ve progressed to the chorus 🙂 I just had a quick question. I noticed in the above video you muted the strumming with your left hand. However, in the tutorial it looks like your muting with a slap with the right hand.. could you clarify the correct technique..January 31, 2021 at 8:33 pm #45123
Congrats on the progress! Muting is with the left hand.February 17, 2021 at 9:53 am #45420
Hi Andrew, I’ve improved on the chorus and can play a version of it 🙂 however I’m muting with my left hand (by covering any open strings and releasing pressure) and just strumming normally with my right hand (no slap or Chuck).
It sounds ok but when I watch you play it looks like your not covering all the strings during the mute. Do you have any videos of your finger position for the muted chords… it’s hard to work out from the video..February 17, 2021 at 11:39 am #45421
Can you share a video playing that part? I’ll be better able to help if I can see/hear what you’re doing.February 22, 2021 at 3:08 am #45473
Hope this helps and isn’t to painful 😎✌️February 22, 2021 at 3:11 am #45474
