i've tried various patterns but none seem completly correct, anyone know of any correct patterns?

05-07-2006, 04:47 PM
My advice = don't play it ;)

down down down up-down down-up-down*

*change chords immediately after the last "down-up-down"

That's kinda the gist of how i've played it. It's not really the best way to write out a strumming pattern, but u should be able to get the timing right if u listen to the song.

I would recommend listening to the song and going from there. Get the chord changes down and play along with the song until you get it.

^He asked for help, not for some dildo to come and judge what he likes...I don't like James Blunt at all but if he does, whatever.

well it's not that i like james blunt. it's just good to know how to play it cus chicks dig this stuff.

Allright whatever, I'm just saying I hate it when people are so convinced that they're music is the only good music. I've heard two James Blunt songs and hated every second of both, but I don't trash people who like that stuff.

Well said Rage, unfortunately it appears to be an endemic problem with these forums.

I blame the parents :)

As for the original question, I learnt this song because Mrs free asked me to. uradirtyape must be right, maybe chicks do dig this type of stuff.

Anyways, for the strumming pattern..... I use down down up up-down down-up-down

The only problem I have is that because of the chords used I nearly always fall into 'Wonderwall' while I'm playing it.

^ haha, i fall into collide, since its the same chord progression in the verse

05-09-2006, 01:34 PM
I use the same pattern as MrSixString......

ignore the pathetic assh0les here, they can't offer any useful advice so they lash out. It's sad. some kidz have nothing better to do.

play what you like, and the chicks will come you flamer

05-17-2006, 05:47 PM
yup we love it! ha ha

05-19-2006, 09:32 PM
The strumming pattern that I use is down down up-up-down up-down-up *next chord*

It isn't too hard to play along with and figure. Chorus aside it's the same strumming pattern throughout.
