Strumming pattern for guitar (A Rush of blood to the head - title track)
Can anyone help me out here?
I think the main verse is
D D U D D D U U D D
But it doesn't sound right and the riff doesn't end there, the problem with it is I think theres an enthisis on some chords. I also don't know the timing.
This is the very first song I've ever tried to learn, so can someone give me the pattern and if applicable the hammer / silenced notes and timing.This years albums...
In Rainbows 9.5/10
The Last Shadow Puppets / ST 8/10
Silent Cry / Feeder 7/10
Viva la vida 9.5/10
Forth / The Verve 8.5/10
Ode to J.Smith / Travis 7/10
Perfect Symmetry / Keane
Dig out your soul / Oasis 8/10
A hundred million suns / Snow Patrol 6/10
Should be a good year.
The best bands ever are Coldplay, Radiohead, Manic Street Preachers, R.E.M, Blur and Muse.

Yes, the verse chords are Am, C or C/G, Em, Am. You can play it in standard tuning or EADGBC, which I think sounds best
(the C/G is a standard C with a G bass - to achieve this, you put the pinky finger on the E-string's 3rd fret. If you find this difficult, just play the standard C).
I think that when Chris plays it, he emphasises (?) the first upward stroke, and the pattern is something like this:
Just keep on playing, and the strumming and timing will improve.... but others are puzzles, puzzling me ...
