    HI David,

    I’m just trying to work out the timing on the strumming with this as there’s a downstroke on beat one and and upstroke on beat three. I’ve listened to the mp3 and I think you’re playing up down up down across each bar? so the middle up down strokes are off timing with an exact beat?

    Any help appreciated!
