I love trying to play songs with chords in them, but I always get upset when I come to tabs and there is no strumming pattern . So my question is, how do I figure what the actuall pattern is when it is not given?

for example this would be the ideal tab for me

but i would love to get accurate tabs of the album version

a bad example( of what always frustrates me is)

P.S I have a hard time just listening to a song and trying to figure out the S.pattern

always do it by ear. I listen to how the sound is coming out of the instrument and imitate it using the tab...
