So, I'm in Stage 3 and I'm not really into adding up strums on the app songs, but I would like to give it a try and I want some suggestion on the pattern, specifically for the song "What's Up".

Cheers.

Have you watched Justin's video lesson for this song? Halfway thru the lesson he discusses and thoroughly demonstrates the strumming pattern incorporating up strokes.

Oh yeah I watched the video, there's no graphic to show the pattern. I had to slow down the video to get the pattern, it's this?

↓↓↑↓↓ ↑↓↑↓↑↓↑↓↑
1   2      3   4        1      2      3      4

Ok I'm having trouble, sometimes he says the above and sometimes:

↓↓↑↓↓ ↑↓↑↓↑↑↓↑ This don't have the 4º beat in the second bar.
1   2      3   4        1      2          3

I could fix this:

↓↓↑↓↓ ↑↓↑↓↑↑↓↑
1   2      3   4        1      2       3  4

But he said the beats is only on down strums and this doesn't make sense and don't sound good.

So what am I missing?

I didn't really play this one when I was doing stage 3 but I seem to remember it's not a straight forward pattern. Maybe come back to it when you've developed a bit. If you're still struggling with chords changes then now is not the time to try and add tricky strumming.

@ Fresher

You seem to be constantly asking questions about things you can't do or don't understand - because you are constantly trying to learn and play things way beyond your ability level.
People keep advising you to just follow the beginner course and be patient.
Take it steady and learn to play the instrument properly a bit at a time.

For your benefit, and anyone else wanting it written out, tthe strum pattern is a two-bar pattern.


Learn it slowly, very slowly, by setting up a tempo of your own or using a metronome at a slow tempo, then play only muted hits across the strings (by resting your fretting hand on the strings, not pressing) and play the pattern over and over and over again until you have it firmly embedded in to your brain and muscles..
Then speed up a bit at a time.
Then play it with one chord and one chord only.
Then introduce a chord change.
Then try to apply it to the chord progression of the song.
This will take more than an hour - it may take days and weeks.

@Garfield Alright.

@close2u Well it seems that this is avanced. So I won't ask on how to play songs with up strums anymore. It's strange because it looks so easy.

You can play upstrums but maybe start a bit slower than this pattern. Stage 3 has a rythym guitar lesson with the pattern dddud. Start with that, then in stage 4 it's a different pattern. Justin keeps introducing things slowly and that's the way to tackle the guitar.
