    I love this song so much. 0 definitely worked the best for me and I could sing along to it very easily. And it sounds more like the song.

  6. coolbeans15

    loveeeee :,)

  7. what is the strumming pattern?

  8. Definitely not a hornet

    I just strum downwards and use DDU, UDU for the outro and stuff. I don’t know if that’s actually right though

  9. It’s just one strum for each I’m pretty sure

  10. Life would be so much easier if you could include the strumming pattern

  11. I find that if you do lose strums down, it sound really good

  12. Just single down strums

  13. blueberry

    much much better in -2

  14. Fairlylocalemo

    You should totally put “My Boy” On here. It’s also by Billie. :)

    Down… down up (and keep on doing it)

Please 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 try to really "feel" the rhythm. Once you get the basics of strumming, I can assure you it'll go real quick. Maybe the strumming guide can help you on your way.
