Strumming
There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
I been searching here for some good and easy playable chords for the man who sold the 
world by david bowie, but i didn't find anyone.
So I made my own, which I think is very correct, concerning both lyrics (the correct 
David Bowie lyrics as written in the the booklet) and chords (especially the G# in the chorus).

that G# you can best play:

E ----l----l----l-1--l-----|l
B ----l----l----l-1--l-----|l
G ----l----l----l----l-2---|l
D ----l----l----l----l-3---|l
A X------------------------|l
E X------------------------|l

[Verse]
(Am)                    E                         Am
    We passed upon the stair, we spoke of was and when
                   E                       C
Although I wasn't there, he said I was his friend
                       G                     E
Which came as some surprise, I spoke into his eyes
                    Am                        G
I thought you died alone, a long, long time ago


[Chorus]
(G)          C
  Oh no, not me!
   G#            C
I never lost control
        G      C
You're face to face
         G#                E
With the Man Who Sold The World


[Verse]
(Am)                        E                          Am
    I laughed and shook his hand, and made my way back home
                        E
I searched for form and land, for years and years I

roamed
                  G                         E
I gazed a gazely stare at all the millions there
                    Am                       G
We must have died alone, a long, long time ago


[Chorus]
(G)               C
   Who knows? Not me!
G#            C
We never lost control
        G      C
You're face to face
         G#                E
With the Man Who Sold The World

I transposed it up 5 steps, and I have to say, this is pretty much how I play it! I'm completely new, here, so that's about all the useful input I can add, at this stage. :)

Thank you so much for your efforts! :)
