Awesome tab! But what does swing mean?

Thank you for your comment and rating. Swing is when the natural duple subdivision of the beat counted: "1 and 2 and 3 and 4 and" is replaced with a triplet subdivision of the beat counted: "1 and ah 2 and ah 3 and ah 4 and ah" It's still 4/4 time (technically the compound time signature 12/8) where we "feel" 4 recurring beats but "inside" those 4 beats there is a different "bouncier" feel.

Try tapping your foot along with the beats "1 2 3 4" and count out loud the "1 and ah 2 and ah 3 and ah 4 and ah" for a while and I'm sure you'll have a breakthrough. In strumming, typically the best idea is still based on "down" on the count and "up" in between where we play on the count and "ah" (long short long short long etc) "1 ah 2 ah 3 ah 4 ah.."

Good luck!
