I'm new to guitar, played off and on for a few years. Been following Justin guitars program at a snails place in-between school and work. Anyhow there is this song I wanna learn and I can't figure out what the pattern is for Amin and c to g7.

If anyone's bored enough to help me it would be appreciated.

He's strumming 16ths all the time but puts an emphasis on certain notes. Something like this:

1 e & a 2 e & a 3 e & a 4 e & a
X     x     X       x   X

X = stronger accent, x = lighter accent

Thx bro for the reply what do u mean by e & a? I guess u mean the top two strings? I Also wondering about the" up down" pattern. I think it's DdD UU D for Amin part specifically. The first three strums is what I'm trying to figure out. I can't get it to sound like the record or the tutorials. Too bad none of them explain the strumming

I'm not talking about strings. The 1 e & a, etc stuff is to show the beats and subdivisions. You should constantly play down and up in 16ths (alternate picking) and just put an emphasis on certain notes.

1 e & a 2 e & a 3 e & a 4 e & a
X     x     X       x   X


So, play a stronger accent on the first beat.
Play a lighter accent on the 4th 16th note of the first beat (or the "a of one").
Play a stronger accent on the 2nd 8th of the 2nd beat (or the "and of two").
Play a lighter accent on the 2nd 8th of the 3rd beat (or the "and of three").
Play a stronger accent on the fourth beat.
