Topic starter  

I was wondering if someone could help me with this. I have the chords (or at least what the book is telling me) but I am clueless when it comes to strumming...does anyone have a strum pattern they would be willing to share? If anyones interested I'll type out the lyrics with the chords I have...thanks

Oh I'll type it out anyway!

Let Your Love Flow
C F
There's a reason for the summer sky
C F
There's a reason why I'm feeling so high
G7 C
Must be the season...when that love light shines all around us

F C F
So let that feeling grab you deep inside
C F
And send you reeling where your love can't hide
G7
And then go stealing through the summer nights
C
With your lover

C7 F
Just let your love flow like a mountain stream
C
(And) let your love grow with the smallest of dreams
G7
And let your love show And you'll know what I mean
C
It's the season

C7 F
Let your love fly like a bird on the wing
C
(And) let your love blind you to all living things
G7
And let your love shine and you'll know what I mean
C
That's the reason
C F
There's a reason for the warm sweet nights
C F
And there's a reason for the candle lights
G7
Must be the season when those love rites shine
C
All around us

F C F
So let the wonder take you into space
C F
And lay you under its loving embrace
G7
Just feel the thunder as it warms your face
C
You can't hold back

C7 F
Just let your love flow like a mountain stream
C
(And) let your love grow with the smallest of dreams
G7
And let your love show And you'll know what I mean
C
It's the season

C7 F
Let your love fly like a bird on the wing
C
(And) let your love blind you to all living things
G7
And let your love shine and you'll know what I mean
C
That's the reason

Thats what I have

Mein Herz schlagt immer fur dich

I don't know the pattern for sure. But i can "hear" it in my head even sitting here, so here goes......

try

D D D (slight pause) UDU DD for each chord.

its quite quick but this pattern should keep it rolling along

To get the slight pause, go against "regular" strumming advice that tells you to keep your arm moving. After the third downstrum, just leave your strumming hand down for an instant, before playing the quick UDU bit

Suggest you try this on one chord until you are happy that you can repeat it, before trying it on all the chords.

good luck

Matt

Welcome here Winston and with a great song too!

I see your chord placings have been affected by our phantom text editer :wink: :wink:
Don't worry we've all been affected by this. On your next submission try putting the chords in brackets where you want them between the words in the lyrics.

Thanks Matt for helping Winston out, I veiwed this earlier and was trying to work out the pattern in my head. I'll have to try this one out.

Cheers,

Chris

When this was out, about '74 or so, I saw a couple of guys playing this in the pub....they used a lot of sus4th's and extended chords, I actually learned what a sus4 was from this song....think they played it in a different key though, looked like they were playing G/D/Dsus4....

I'll see what i can find out....

:D :D :D

Great tune! I haven't played it for a couple of years but here's my tab on it..


LET YOUR LOVE FLOW – The Bellamy Brothers
(Capo on 1st fret / Key of D# / 103 BPM)

INTRO 2X: D G

1/E |-------------------|
2/B |-3---3---3-3-3---3-|
3/G |-2---2---2-2-2---0-|
4/D |-0---0---0-0-0---0-| OR |-0h2p0-| instead of V-A-V
5/A |-----------------2-|
6/E |-V---V---V-A-V---V-| < STRUM PATTERN THROUGH OUT

VERSE 1:

NC D
THERE'S A REASON, FOR THE SUNSHINY SKY

AND THERE'S A REASON, WHY I'M FEELING SO HIGH
A INTRO 1X
MUST BE THE SEASON, WHEN THAT LOVE LIGHT SHINES ALL A-ROUND US
NC G NC D
SO LET THAT FEELING, GRAB YOU DEEP INSIDE

AND SEND YOU REELING, WHERE YOUR LOVE CAN'T HIDE
A D
AND THEN GO STEALING, THROUGH THE MOONLIT NIGHT WITH YOUR LOVER

CHORUS:

G
JUST LET YOUR LOVE FLOW, LIKE A MOUNTAIN STREAM
D
AND LET YOUR LOVE GROW, WITH THE SMALLEST OF DREAMS
A
AND LET YOUR LOVE SHOW, AND YOU'LL KNOW WHAT I MEAN,
D
IT'S THE SEASON
G
LET YOUR LOVE FLY, LIKE A BIRD ON THE WIND
D
AND LET YOUR LOVE FIND YOU, TO ALL LIVING THINGS
A
AND LET YOUR LOVE SHINE, AND YOU'LL KNOW WHAT I MEAN,
D* BREAK
THAT'S THE REASON

BREAK 2X: G D

1/E |-7---7-7--7---2-|
2/B |-8---8-8--8---3-|
3/G |-7---7-7--7---2-|
4/D |-0---0-0--0---0-|
5/A |----------------|
6/E |-V---V-A--V---V-|

VERSE 2:

D
THERE'S A REASON, FOR THE WARM SWEET NIGHTS

AND THERE'S A REASON, FOR THE CANDLE LIGHTS
A INTRO RIFF 1X
MUST BE THE SEASON, WHEN THOSE LOVE LIGHTS SHINE ALL A-ROUND US
NC G NC D
SO LET THAT WONDER, TAKE YOU INTO SPACE

AND LAY YOU UNDER, IT'S LOVING EMBRACE
A D
JUST FEEL THE THUNDER, AS IT WARMS YOUR FACE, YOU CAN'T HOLD BACK

CHORUS: (2X and fade)

G
JUST LET YOUR LOVE FLOW, LIKE A MOUNTAIN STREAM
D
AND LET YOUR LOVE GROW, WITH THE SMALLEST OF DREAMS
A
AND LET YOUR LOVE SHOW, AND YOU'LL KNOW WHAT I MEAN,
D
IT'S THE SEASON
G
LET YOUR LOVE FLY, LIKE A BIRD ON THE WIND
D
AND LET YOUR LOVE FIND YOU, TO ALL LIVING THINGS
A
AND LET YOUR LOVE SHINE, AND YOU'LL KNOW WHAT I MEAN,
D
THAT'S THE REASON

NOTE: Alternate to two Chorus' and out would be on the second time to do a bar chord walkup D D# E F, and then go into a percussive strumming and muting for the first half of the chorus, and then walkup again into second half of chorus. Finish by repeating the break two times.

E doesn't = MC2, E = Fb
