um, last i checked tabs didnt ever include strum pattern, youre supposed to be able to pick that up on your own by listening to the song and looking at the tab....i thought,
"insert witty somewhat racial, innapropriate, degrading comment here"

the verse is being strummed not plucked all UG tabs are wrong.

frusciante's playing it by strumming it.

Wow, ok we'll
Evan50150 was right you're supposed to be able to pick that up on your own. No one can help you becasue your asking something ridiculous. Strumming is something you should be able to pick up within your very first week of playing. Also nearly all tabs are incorrect, once in a while there will be one that is completley accurate but not usualley.

you should use the tab as a basis only, and use your ears to listen to the song and pick out the correct way to play the notes. If you can't do that, I suggest serious training for your ear. tab requests don't get people anywhere. :P

are you kidding, simply listen to the song and count the strums then try to emulate it, you dont need to have a years playing experience to do this, trust me

the earlier you get used to using your ear, the better. I left it quite late to develop mine, and i regret it. I just stuck to tabs for 2 years. for the past year and a half though, I've been playing by ear, helped me in almost every aspect.

If you're just playing chords, strumming pattern doesn't really matter all that much. As long as you are playing the progression correctly, whatever you do with the chords is up to artistic interpretation (aka do whatever the hell you want).

Nobody who is going to listen to you is going to be like "That 5th 16th note is supposed to be upstroked, not downstroked!"

Righty ho, what John does, is he mutes every note he's not playing, so he's only playing one note at a time when doing this usually, so just practice doing that, then try it while strumming, so you're playing in time, playing the right notes, but with all other strings muted.

It's strummed. I know exactly what he's talking about.

John really pulled off something tough in this song: Everything except for the solo is strummed, even the verse lick. Up-down-up-down all the way. Watch him play that song live and you'll see what I mean.

Sorry dude, but there is no strumming pattern for the verse. The best you're going to be able to do is whack all six strings with the same rhythm you use for playing the single notes and mute the strings you aren't using.
what happened to the proposed Kirk Hammett flamenco album?


His acoustic didn't sound good with wah pedal, I suppose.

^That's what I meant, maybe he didn't really get it. Watch the Slane DVD or something, figure it out, it's really hard to explain on here.

Ok, then you can strum it or just pluck it. Strumming will be harder because John, as RHCP told, mutes every string that he's not playing, and that's one hell of a technique, it can be very hard.

Sorry dude, you did get to it first.

Just work on that song man. It's one of the most difficult RHCP songs to play. "Show me Your Soul" is no cake-walk either.

Stop being a bitch, wtf. You should find it yourself. Acting like they have wasted your time by trying to help you.
#23
dude, it has been explained to you already like 4 times, I will just fucking repeat it:


1) JUST PRACTICE STRUMMING (listen and play with song)

2) MUTE STRINGS NOT MEANT TO BE PLAYED

3) HIT STRINGS THAT ARE MEANT TO BE PLAYED

4) DONT COMPLAIN ABOUT THE ADVICE YOU ASKED FOR


close this thread, dammit.
