Is there a special way I'm supposed to strum tabs like this?
|------------------------------------------------------|
|-12-12-12-12-12\7-7-7-7\5-5-5-5-5\1-1-0-|
|-----------------------\4-4-4-4-4\0-0-0----------|
|-12-12-12-12-12\7-7-7-7----------------------|
|------------------------------------------------------|

|-12-12-12-12-12\7-7-7-7\5-5-5-5-5\8-8-8-8-|
|-----------------------\4-4-4-4-4\7-7-7-7----------|
|-12-12-12-12-12\7-7-7-7-------------------------|

(Example is Pin - Yeah Yeah Yeahs)
I've been tapping it and it's worked out fine so far but...
Then I encounter stuff like this.

|------------------------------------------------------------------------|
|-14141414-14141414-12121212-12121212--11111111111111111111111111111111--|

(She's my Winona - Fall Out Boy)
Tried tapping, not sure I'm doing it right. Help?
You stole my heart!
You ran away!
Now I'm heartless!
So fuck you anyway!

...wtf.?

how do you strum without hitting the G sting...in the first part.? between the 12, 12 part.?
#4
no idea. Tapping sounded right, but not so much on the other song
You stole my heart!
You ran away!
Now I'm heartless!
So fuck you anyway!

mute the G string with the finger holding the D string down.

then just strum.

Edit: and mute the D string on the second example with the finger holding down the A string.
