usually, you can't tell the strumming pattern unless you are familiar with the song...listen to the songs on youtube or something to get the timing and the strumming pattern.

It's a pain to write the strumming pattern out in tab form....just listen to the song and you'll get the hang of it. Most of the time it goes along with the beat of the song pretty closely, so start there.

This.

Listening to the song should tell you the strumming pattern, as with some songs, that are played with casual / altering strumming patterns, it's a real bitch to write it as a regular tab. You can either figure out the strumming patterns if you want to play note-for note, or you can make them up yourself to bring out your individual version. I often do this, following the song with my own patterns that go well with the feel of the different parts, sometimes arpeggiating the chords also.
