Mm, I would LOVE it if someone would help me learn the song Tim McGraw by Taylor Swift. <33

C'mon, you know you want to. I know how to read the tabs and everything, but I don't knowthe downstrokes and upstrokes.

Dude...just listen to the song...and try to play along. It's not easy to write tabs for strumming patterns, and even if someone did, you'd have to listen to the song to make it fit, so just figure it out yourself. It'll feel better when you figure it out without any help, anyways.

look its easy to do chords 2 songs
just do this
downstroke and upstroke to the song
the simplest strumming pattern is: down up down up down up down up down up
just repeat that throughout the whole song
and after u play that much enough u should start adjusting to the beat of the song
then again theres chord changes u have to worry about
but those are easy
just do the pattern i showed u that should work
lol
as for the other bit
u can
do u know the song by heart?
cuz if u cant
sing the song in ur head
while playing the guitar
u can hear music
when ur not at home
u just have 2 remeber the music
lol
um if u dont get this
or u still have problems u can im me and ill try 2 guide u through it
