Strumming
There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
Harro :D. Hi, My name is Jeff and I am 15 years old. I have recently found 
out that David Choi released a new album called 'Forever and Ever'. its been
over a month since the album came out and i found out that it was released
just yesterday... (fail) ^^" ANYWAYS, My favorite song (out of the whole 
album) was 'This and That is Life' and I felt like I HAD to learn how to play
it, but nobody posted the chords for it online yet! So then, I watched a 
couple of videos on youtube where David played the song live and learned the
chords (but they're not perfect... :P). This is my first chord/tab  thingy I'm posting
so please, even if I get a lot of things wrong, no rude comments? :D 
THANK YOU and enjoy xD. 


Youtube Video used to figure out the chords:

AND
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t-UttjBYryI&feature=related

WARNING: 1) THIS IS MY FIRST TAB/CHORD SO I WILL GET A FEW CHORDS WRONG
         2) All the chords of the song are jazz chords (i think) so be aware,
            they are hard to play at first, but just practice and you'll get 
            it    :D 
            (and if they're not hard for you to play, "dang... you'r good..")

TIPS: 1) The song has a jazz/R&B feeling, and jazz/R&B is a genre you tend to 
         improvise and play around with (which also means having fun with,   
         which is the reason it is my favorite genre), and that is what you 
         should do with this song   :D
      2) The strumming is all the same except the 'pre-chorus' and the 
         'bridge'. You strum down once and you palm mute it immediately. 
          Repeat that (only the 'down-strum') throughout the intro, verse, 
          chorus, etc. The 'pre-chorus' and the 'bridge' are harder to describe
          so my suggestion is to listen to the song and try the rhythm, and 
          improvise if you can't get it (like how I did xD). 


Please send any corrections you find so I can fix it for other people too @

Hey, great job buddy!
Yeah, the chords you got are right;

I'm not 100% sure about the bridge chords, but below is what I think it sounds like-

Bridge:

[EADGBe]

Im getting over
9x998x
8x998x

Four leaf clovers
7x777x
x7677x (sounds like there is the high A and Aflat; 5th and 4th fret on the high e string somewhere in that chord, but it can be left out for simplicity)

Today…oh yeah
5x555x
x5455x

Cheers!

Hehe.. sorry for the REALLY late reply... I completely forgot about this song ^^" Anyways, Thank You!! I've made the changes (hopefully they'll be up soon). wow.. a whole year... hehe..

just two question. What's the name of the chords for this section?

"Im getting over
9x998x
8x998x"

and I've tried to play the high A and G# on the e string and they sound right, but is really hard to play (can't fit it in the chords that I play this song with) so I just made it into a different chord (ones I still don't know the name to) as this.

"Four leaf clovers
7x777x
x7677x -> x7676x

Today…oh yeah
5x555x
x5455x -> x5454x"

and it still sounded pretty okay. hope it's not just me :P

ANYWAYS!! I just really want to thank you for
1) the bridge
2) the correction on the Cm7 (accidentally put it as a C#m7 ^^")

and I'm really sorry for the late reply..

oh, also there should be a correction for the Cm7 tab;

it should be: 8x888x

instead of the posted: 9x999x
