Hey guys, I need some help. I'm pretty new to the guitar and can't quite play by ear yet. Could I get some help with strumming?

The song I'm learning to play is 18th Floor Balcony by Blue October ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jyR-WnY56Ds ). I'm playing using these chords: http://www.ultimate-guitar.com/tabs/b/blue_october/18th_floor_balcony_crd.htm .

Could someone help me with learning to play the song? I need help with the strumming patterns, but absolutely every tip will help. I need all I can get.
Thanks!

Heh well I don't think its called strumming... I dunno what to call it. Like, which strings to play in what order etc.
Thanks, though! It still helped.

^ Yeah thats the way you play it, but you could strum to make it a bit lively since the song is fully of effects and sounds.

Also note that the
e: ----------------------------------|
B: --------1--------------1----------|
G: ------3---3---3------3----3---0---|
D: ----2-------2------2--------2-----|
A: --0--------------0----------------|
E: ----------------------------------|

Should be
e: ----------------------------------|
B: --------1--------------1----------|
G: ------0---0---0------0----0---0---|
D: ----2-------2------2--------2-----|
A: --0--------------0----------------|
E: ----------------------------------|
