hey whats up guys. recently i joined a rockband that plays allot of melloncamp, im going to be the rythem guitarist. they want me to learn these 4 songs by our next practice in 2 weeks. no problem, they are all simple chords. the one thing i noticed was they all seem to have the same exact rythem/strumming pattern. maybe slighty varried, but to the point were it sounds verry verry close. im not that good of a guitar player and have recently been learning about rythem and differant strumming patterns. did i overlook something, or are they all the same rythem, with a differnt tempo? thanks.
