Hello - sorry this is so confusing.

For each measure (or bar) the strum is this:

1 and 2-e-and-a 3 and 4-e-and-a

OR

D D DUDUD D DUDU

G is strummed over the 1 and 2, D is strummed over the 3 and 4.

THEN

Am is strummed over the 1 and 2, and Am7 is strummed over the 3 and 4.

Then it repeats, except you don't go to Am, you'll go to C and it will be:

C is strummed over the 1, 2, 3, and 4.

Make sense?

Mike

This is what I think each chord should be like, thanks
