hey m just confused about the strumming pattern. I have an acoustic guitar and m trying the song Hero-Enrique Eglesias. But the thing is that a)m still an amateur and its my second song and b) I don't know anything about the strumming patterns. Hell, I don't even known the pronunciation of some chords like Dsus4 and all that. Even the videos on the net were confusing. Help me please!

I think strumming patterns is like anything else. Think to much about it and it becomes a task. I always start with a down stroke and build off that. I sing (and I can't sing) the song to myself as I strum slow then once I got it, I've pretty much go it. And though it may sound not 100% to an expert, its music in my ears!
