Anyways I know people are going to call me a dumbass but.... I was looking into strumming since my friend says to play guitar I should learn it and I have been doing my scales and everything and as I'm reading tabs for Smoke on the water and Iron Man I'm just gettting confused. When I see the chord/power chord patterns and I see the line up top that puts two or four nots together, am I supposed to strum that one string? Also whats with the doulbe bar up top can anyone help me out if not thanks anways
A sell out- is someone who does something only for the money. Not because you dont like it chump.
Yea I don't fully understand what you're saying.

Are you trying to tell us that you see 2-4 notes on the lines and then another note above the lines, a chord?

The chord progression would be the rhythm and the notes on the lines would be the lead, that's usually how it is.
