Hey all, I'm new to the forums and the guitar, but I've been having a little trouble with the general strumming pattern on Collective Soul's "The World I Know".

Here is the link to the chords, which I know and I am gettting fairly efficient at changing between them.

So I was wondering if someone could help me with the general strumming pattern. The way I learned it was / was a downstroke and /\ was an upstroke? If I remember right? Or maybe \ was an upstroke. Or really you can do it any way you want, just as long as you let me know how you do it. So an example would be

//\ ///\
//\ //\ ///\

and so on. But I appreciate any help. Thanks
