Hi, I'm trying to learn this song but there are some parts I don't understand how it is played.

First of all the chords in the songbook and the strumming patterns seemse different from what is explained in the youtube video (the newer video). I learned from the video and play it like it is shown there.

What I am struggling to play is em to fadd9 and to G. It doesn't seeme like the pattern is the same as the rest of the song and I can't figure out how it should be played.

Thanks for the help

HELP!

I too am having a problem with the change on the strumming pattern for this song when change from F-G-C-G-C.

The strumming pattern is  d       d     u d  d     udu
                                       1+2+3+4+ 1+2+3+4+

I've got the strumming pattern down okay but it is the change, when singing on the line "Now the drugs don't work, they just make you worse But I know I'll see your face again."

It's page 134 for in your bible people. :D If anyone has the SB1 and could take a look I'd really appreciate some help.

If you'd like a video so I can show you what I'm doing wrong, then please let me know.

Thank you.  :)
