    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.

    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

    Up for the &’s

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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…

    I think that’s fine 🙂
