Strumming
There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ

**standard tuning**

**(1+ 2+ 3+ 4+) are counts to help with strumming patterns in a few places


** the A#/F  according to a chord finder is really B♭add11/F  but I can't use/link the ♭ notation on this 
editor so here is the tab for the chord I play as well as variations that might sound better to you.
I personally like just having to move my two fingers on the 3rd fret when changing quick from the F chord.


B♭add11/F  or   B♭/F  or    B♭

E|---1----    ----1---    ---1---                      
B|---3----    ----3---    ---3---                     
G|---3---- OR ----3--- OR ---3---                       
D|---1----    ----3---    ---3---                        
A|---1----    ----1---    ---1---                        
E|---1----    ----1---    ---X---


**many don't use the B♭/F and just keep strumming on F but I like mixing it up a bit to break the monotony
