Hi guys ^_^

I'm trying to play Everybody hurts by Avril Lavigne on my guitar, but I can't really figure out the strums.

Can anyone help?

As in the rhythm? I don't mean to be rude but... what help do you think we can actually give with that?

The best indication of the rhythm to that song is... to listen to that song. Just keep listening and practicing I guess.

Yeah, TS..

Why'd you have to go and make things so complicated?

Avril Lavigne
But boys will be boys and girls have those eyes
that'll cut you to ribbons, sometimes
and all you can do is just wait by the moon
and bleed if it's what she says you ought to do

Play it in 16th notes. Strum down down down down so you get in sync with the rhythm. (if it's 4/4, I'd be shocked if it wasn't.) Then once you get comfortable continue with 16th notes but swap every other down stroke with an up stroke. So you're down up down up.

Now that you're in rhythm with your up and down strokes experiment with it. Take out one stroke, add a quarter note in etc. That's how I used to work out rhythm.

You'll get it too.

Go ahead and spend your money, I don't care. It won't make you sound better.

Sure upgrading your gear will make you sound better.

Guitar Techniques

There are other sub forums here for questions of that nature.
If you want to get a valid answer to any question, The Pit is not really the best place to ask.
Unless you want to know how many times other people masturbate to pictures of pandas.

I am also a girl and I also don't do ballet, but I don't want to play the song so that's where the similarities end. I guess we can't be best friends forever.
There's no such thing; there never was. Where I am going you cannot follow me now.

That, and all the fact that all of the sexually frustrated boys on this site don't want pictures of your genitals.
