Strumming
There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
Artist: Adele
Song: Someone Like You
Played on Jools Holland 'Later' November 2010
prior to its release on the '21' album in 2011.
That Jools performance was accompanied by piano, but an arpeggiated acoustic
guitar works beautifully with the song too.

This song is best picked rather than strummed, just playing simple patterns on the basic 
chords. I have added suggestions for the picking pattern at the bottom of the tab.
***
(Original guitar chord names listed in this version were completely off. I used find and paste technique from 
MSWord to make fixes to reflect finger positions. I am not sure of how to affect changes to the pop up 
chording that is for uke and I did not address the uke chord variations at document end but I hope this helps 
soothe some tensions for those that want to play this version of the song with properly named guitar chords 
for the listed finger positions.

             A                 E                     F#m   D

Yeah Yeah
-----------------------------------------

I hope the following will assist!

OK. The numbers on the strings should relate to which finger to use -

't' is thumb, 1,2,3 are 1st, 2nd, 3rd fingers respectively!

So the D chord (xx0232) picked like this

E-------------------|
B-----2-------2-----|
G---1---1---1---1---|
D-t-------t---------|t...... etc
A-------------------|
E-------------------|

The A chord (x02220) like this! nb finger '3' can be left out or played simultaneously with '2'!

E---------------------------|
B-------3-----------3-------|
G-----2---2-------2---2-----|
D---1-------1---1-------1---|
A-t-----------t-------------|t....etc
E---------------------------|

...and so on for the other chords.

Luckily for us all, although Adele is magnificent, she plays guitar in a quite simple style!


-----------------------------------------

I hope I've done it justice!
