This.
City and Colour songs have weird strumming patterns, it takes a long time to have them completely right, I usually make my own strumming patterns that are similar but not perfect.

Just play what sounds good, it doesn't need to be the correct strumming.

EDIT: Look at that^, and you can tell if someones trying to hard to get the strumming right cus it sounds unnatural and and very n00bish.

No, really.

If you want to get the strum pattern down the way they play it, listen to how they play it. If you don't get it, listen again.

And again.


And again.


And again.


Until that strum pattern is so burned into your brain that you mess up and play other songs with that same pattern. Learning music is 90% about your ears. Listen and don't just hear the music, really listen to it and understand what they were doing in each measure.

When you work on the strumming pattern, don't play the actual chords. Mute the strings until you get the rhythm down completely and then add in the chords.

I laugh at you; as a bass player, that song is monumentally easy. The hardest part is the verse, and all you have to do is keep a steady beat.
