Strumming
There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
This is my first submission.  I like the song and the funky guitar riff.
And I got it figured out exactly.  Don't tell my friends I'm posting this.

The song has three parts: Verse, Chorus and Bridge
The parts are unmistakable when you listen to it.


[VERSE]

Here's some tab that should get you through.

         F5/F#5        A#m      F#                         F# F#   C#
e---------------------------9-------------------------------------------|
B----------------X-X----11-----11----------------X-X-------11-11----9---|
G--------10/11---X-X----10-----11----------------X-X-------11-11---10---|
D--------10/11---X-X----11-----11----------------X-X-------11-11---11---|
A-----------------------------------------------------------------------|
E-----------------------------------------------------------------------|

/ = slide

F5    x x 10 10 x x
F#5   x x 11 11 x x
A#m   x x 11 10 11 9
F#    x x 11 11 11 x
C#    x x 11 10 9 x

To really nail this you have to finger it correctly so I'm going to give the chords 
with left
hand finger to be used after the slash. 1 is your pointer finger and 4 is your pinky.

F5    x x 10/3 10/3 x x
F#5   x x 11/3 11/3 x x
A#m   x x 11/3 10/2 11/4 9/1
F#    x x 11/3 11/3 11/3 x
C#    x x 11/3 10/2 9/1 x

(And for you Theory nerds I thinks it pretty clear the A#m is actually a F#maj7(no root) 
I digress!)


[CHORUS]

F#   A#m   D#m

Big barre chords work just fine
F#    2 4 4 3 2 2
A#m   6 8 8 6 6 6
D#m   x 6 8 8 7 6


[BRIDGE]

This part doesn't have guitar but the chords are

C#  D#m  C#  G#m  C#  D#m  B  C#(type 2)

Note that the final C# in the bridge lasts for only the last two beats so it's easy to 
it.

Here are some nice voicings that I use for this part.

C#    x x 6 6 6 x
D#m   x x 8 8 7 x
G#m   x x 6 4 4 x
B     x x 9 8 7 x
C#(type 2)     x x 11 10 9 x

Hope this is helpful and enjoyable - this one's a lot of fun!


[Lyrics]

[Verse 1]
I hopped off the plane at L.A.X
With a dream and my cardigan
Welcome to the land of fame excess
Am I gonna fit in?
Jumped in the cab, here I am for the first time
Look to my right, and I see the Hollywood sign
This is all so crazy
Everybody seems so famous

[Pre-Chorus 1]
My tummy's turnin' and I'm feelin' kinda home sick
Too much pressure and I'm nervous
That's when the taxi man turned on the radio
And a Jay-Z song was on
And the Jay-Z song was on
And the Jay-Z song was on

[Chorus]
So I put my hands up
They're playing my song, the butterflies fly away
I'm noddin' my head like, 'yeah'
I'm movin' my hips like, 'yeah'
I got my hands up, they're playing my song
I know I'm gonna be okay
Yeah, it's a party in the U.S.A
Yeah, it's a party in the U.S.A

[Verse 2]
Get to the club in my taxi cab
Everybody's looking at me now
Like, "Who's that chick, that's rockin' kicks?
She gotta be from out of town"
So hard with my girls not around me
It's definitely not a Nashville party
Cause all I see are stilettos
I guess I never got the memo

[Pre-Chorus 2]
My tummy's turnin' and I'm feelin' kinda home sick
Too much pressure and I'm nervous
That's when the DJ dropped my favorite tune
And a Britney song was on
And a Britney song was on
And a Britney song was on

[Chorus]
So I put my hands up
They're playing my song, the butterflies fly away
I'm noddin' my head like, 'yeah'
I'm movin' my hips like, 'yeah'
I got my hands up, they're playing my song
I know I'm gonna be okay
Yeah, it's a party in the U.S.A
Yeah, it's a party in the U.S.A

[Bridge]
Feel like hopping on a flight
Back to my hometown tonight
Something stops me every time
The DJ plays my song and I feel alright

[Chorus] (2x)
So I put my hands up
They're playing my song, the butterflies fly away
I'm noddin' my head like, 'yeah'
I'm movin' my hips like, 'yeah'
I got my hands up, they're playing my song
I know I'm gonna be okay
Yeah, it's a party in the U.S.A
Yeah, it's a party in the U.S.A
