    The melody:
    E:—-1-1-1—1—1—-4—-1-1-1-4-1————– ||
    A:–4——-4—4———————4-3—-1-3-4-0||
    D:————————————————-0||
    G:————————————————- ||

    The solo and other things are all worked out of a Bb Minor scale (if played in the original key),
    Make it your own song and try other things!

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.
