The strum pattern is: D D UD D D D. The first 2 downstrokes are quarter notes - right on the beat (1 and 2). There's a quick upstroke right before beat 3, and then you strum downstrokes on 3, 'and of 3', 4, and the 'and of 4'. Use the speed buttons on the left side of the video frame to slow it down if you need to, and work your way up to speed.
Hope this helps! Let me know how it goes!
