Since i'm still a nab, i'm not really good at picking up strumming patterns yet by ear. Any help getting the strumming pattern or a overall rough one would be great for this song ( i know it looks like he improvises at some parts in the verses so just a rough pattern :P ).

Link's working now...good song, one of my favorite bands, but I'm afraid I didn't recognize much besides the Dm. The lighting in that vid could be a little better, eh?

Surround what you are trying to type with the "code" tags. That'll keep the spacing constant.

And make use of the "preview" button, to make sure it looks right before you click "submit" and let the rest of us see it

The code tag should work, but you could always use something else instead of spaces for the gaps, like dashes, so you'd have: |-||-||| or D-DU-UDU.

As long as the character isn't a space, they will be printed (browsers only display one space between words, no matter how many are in the source code - it's part of the HTML specs). Dashes are good as opposed to underscores, because you can see the gap between them and so it's easier to tell how many there are in a row.

1st chord sec third
----D---- D----U----D----U---- D---- D----U----U----D im struggling to get my point across here as i said im much better at just playing by ear than theory.it would have been easier to write the pattern down in note form i think. i dont know how far off the intro strum pattern this is but its a step in the right direction,theres various little strums added here and there,that,my lack of theory +been unable to write a proper pattern down isnt making this easy
