Normally I use a metronome to practice scales or to practice changing chords. But how does one go about learning to play a song with a metronome when say the strum pattern is not all down strums to match with 4 clicks on the metronome (in 4/4 time)?

What's the problem with the strumming not being like that? You just have to keep in mind that the counting is imaginary and just serves to give you a notion of how fast things are going to be. Counting is a way to make it more "real" I guess, but it's just how fast/slow you're going to play a song. That is not taking in consideration the emphasis stuff.

When doing an upstroke count it as +. so if your doing DUDUDUDU it would be 1+2+3+4+.

well say the pattern is like D DDUDDU D, how would I count the ones in between the end downs?
