2... but thats wrong.

(Strum DADF#)
(8,9 Chord [in groups of 4] strum pattern is down, up, down, down. And the groups of 2 
are links wit the the next 4. there just up, down. The last 3 are all fast down strokes 
before you get to the 5,5 chord.

The 5,5 chord are just 2 slowed down stokes. The way you play this is optional, be 
inventive to make it suit you, just get a strum pattern, and play it 4 times before the 5,5 chord.
