Do not ask for strumming patterns. Sharing online how to literally play a song (i.e. strumming, rhythm and tempo) is not allowed by the MPA (Music Publishers Association) because of copyright issues. Carefully listen to the song and "feel" the rhythm. Once you get the basics of strumming, it'll go real quick.
