    Hi guys,
    I am a neophyte in guitar. Most of the poost over here give info about the chord to be used and are greatly helpful. But as beginner I am never able to understand how can i determine te strumming pattern.

    Can any one please help me by explaining the procedure of determing the strumming pattern.
    The little I know, I can guess it goes somewhat by the beats but I am not sure how.

    Thanks in advance.

    listen to a song many many times, u'll get a feel of that song.
    actually strumming pattern has to follow the beats of the songs.

    just listen to a song and pay attention to the background bass.the beats
    and just let ur hand free on the guitar and try to follow the beat(not copy the beat).
    u'll go wrong 3-4 times but keep trying
