In the tabs I've seen, nothing indicates a strumming pattern, and how to strum.

I already have down songs like Crash into Me by Dave Matthews, but it never sounds "right".

Anyone know how I can find out the strumming patterns of songs?

And if you can tell me the strumming pattern of these 2 songs:

Crash Into Me
Collide(Howie Day)

It is hard to do with tab. Power Tab and Guitar Pro both play the song with midi and use notation to show you how. Otherwise it is jsut a case of using your ears.

Hope that helps.

You should learn new strumming patterns for different songs then eventually when you have played enough you can work them out by listening to it, I found this site helpful , scroll to the bottom of the page.
