Strumming
There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
Now that the entire world is going to hell, it seems like a good time for everyone to learn the classic
folk punk song "Every Town Will Celebrate" by Mischief Brew.



The strumming pattern on this song is the hardest part - it is:

Down, up down, up up up down
Down, up down, up up up down

The commas represent a pause where you deaden the strings from the previous strum.

For example, the intro would be:


DOWN (deaden strings) UP DOWN (deaden strings) UP UP UP DOWN
C                   C  C                     F  F  Am  Am

DOWN (deaden strings) UP DOWN (deaden strings) UP UP UP DOWN
G                   G  G                     F  F  C   C

Practice this pattern over and over and the song should come pretty naturally. Not the hardest song to learn,
but definitely not easy by any means. 

I personally find that practicing the strumming pattern without using any chords (with the strings deadened) 
helps the pattern come more quickly.

You only use this pattern for the intro and verses. For the pre choruses and chorus you can use 
standard down down up up down up strumming (or any 4/4 pattern you want).

On the bridge there is some syncopated strumming during the bridge, just listen to the song and copy. This may
be another strumming pattern you need to spend some time practicing before you can execute it cleanly, but
don't give up and you will get it eventually!

[Intro]
C F Am
G F C


[Verse 1]
N.C.
Well,big bad man come into town
N.C.
Giving sweets to the children, pushed their daddies around
N.C
Made the streets so bright in the zones of blight
N.C
No more fear in the hearts of whites
C                    F     Am
He built a hall, put on a show
G                             F       C
From high above watched his boulders roll
C                                   F        Am
Then he bought main street and the old town hall
G                                      F
He named his price: his face on every wall (strum both chords once)
Am       G      F              Am   G
WOOOOAAAAH his face on every wall!

C                       F        Am
Now the factories have all shut down
G                      F        C
No more cloth stitched in this town
C                     F     Am
So they only job for boy and I
G                     F     C
In the prison making tile shine
C                      F        Am
Someday that man will come here too
G                     F        C
With that magic hat, spit and glue
C                     F         Am
He'll wash the stone, paint the brick
G                                          F
Rename the streets and make the clocks all tick
Am       G                          F       Am   G
OOooooon time, he'll make us run on time! (this line is the pre chorus)


[Chorus]
C                   F      G      C
And every town will celebrate someday
       F                    Am       G
Waving sweatshop flags and grande lattes
        Dm               F              G               Am
Wearing culture on their backs, wearing spirit on their hats
C                   F    G    C           G
One by one they'll join the parade and celebrate!
C                     F     G      C
Yeah every town will celebrate someday

[Verse 2]
C                     F       Am
Now corners near and corners far
G                    F      C
Are somehow the same coffee bar
C                 F    Am
And community is felt again
G                    F      C
Thanks to folks I've never met
     C                   F           Am
They slayed the artists, stole their arts
G                  F        C
Gave the toddlers shopping carts
C                  F          Am
Raised the prices, raised the rent
G                                       F
Some days I wish that I could go back again
Am   G                    F     Am    G
Nooooo, I can't go back again! (this line is the pre chorus)


[Chorus]
C                   F      G      C
And every town will celebrate someday
       F                    Am       G
Waving sweatshop flags and grande lattes
        Dm               F              G               Am
Wearing culture on their backs, wearing spirit on their hats
C                   F    G    C           G
One by one they'll join the parade and celebrate!
C                     F     G      C
Yeah every town will celebrate someday


[Bridge]
C                    C/B

        Bb           F
Down in Celebration, Florida
      G#            Cm          G
Where every road is main street USA
         C              C/B
We'll be safely kept at bay
         Bb               F
From any disruption or display
       G#      Cm        G        Cm
Of truth, adventure, love and rage
     G#      Cm      G        Cm
Truth, adventure, love and rage
    G#      Cm        G

Waving sweatshop flags and grande lattes
        Dm               F              G               Am
Wearing culture on their backs, wearing spirit on their hats
C                   F    G    C           G
One by one they'll join the parade and celebrate!
C                     F     G      C
Yeah every town will celebrate someday


[Outro]
C               F    G      C              F G
Every town will celebrate, every town will celebrate,
C               F     G         C
Every town will celebrate someday!
