Strumming
There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
This is a very simple rendition of the song Rooster by Alice in Chains that you can play with your acoustic
guitar. Remember they play it with a half-step down tuning.
If you listen to the song you can hear that the F# and A chords are played with some variations,
you can easily reproduce that playing those chords with barre and then lifting your index finger leaving 1st,
2nd and 6th strings open.
