    |Bm G|D A|Bm G|D A| x2

    ok...the bars... | <<< these babies....does it mean that Bm and G will consist of one measure combined?

    because thats my guess...and that should help with the counting as well :)

    nope the count is dependant on the song. unfortunately thats something you'll need to work out

    they represent the start and end of a bar, otherwise known as bar lines.

    ok i get what that means but i gots another question about strumming as well now..

    take this pattern D U U D U U D

    how would i break this down into like an actual pattern...with the downs and ups closer to each other..

    i mean like DU U DUU D is that how it would be?
    this is the pattern for woh lamhay in case that helps.

    but in general...whats the best way to try to do that....because like half the time ppl just write them out......and sometimes i find it hard to carry the pattern on....like for example...this one ends with a D...and starts again with a down....so theres like a pause in between?...this disrupts the strumming....any advice?

    its just a break - let yo8r hand just flow over the strumming -

    if u can paly the 2 upstrokes - u can also play the 2 downstrokes - make it sound ocntinuous - hard to explain - listen to it being played - hats the ebst advice - ur hand will naturally e able to aply the strumming out...

    if that doesnt work -0 then the only other thing is practise hard and force ur ahnd to strum correctly

    ok - try and imagine this - dun-da-na-dun-da-na-na - now if you can play that beat in ur head - follow ur strumming - i mean i havent even picked up my guitar - ut my hand is moving to that...

    the dun - is a down, - the da -is the first upstroke and the na is the second upstroke except for the aslt one - its a downstroke as per your strumming patter - sing it out - the lengths (in time taken to sing it out) of the duns,das, nas will will help you strum
