There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
Shakira-whenever, whereever...
(standard tuning) 
 Heres what I have so far? -(Basic structure of song)
(Not exactly sure of the "precise" CHORD names).
[C#m]-X46454     1// -4--------    --4---------       /-4--------
[G#m]-466444     2// ---5------    --4---------       /-4--------
A7-X02222        3// -4--(6)---    --4-(5)-----       /----5-----
B- X24422        4// -----6----    --------6---       /-------6--
F#-244222        5// -4--------    --------6---       /-------6--
E- X22100        6// -X--------    --4---------       /-4--------
                     [C#minor]      [G#minor]          [C#Major]-(Pre-Chorus)

The [C#m] & [G#m] examples above.     -[dtune_99@yahoo.com]-

The (numbers) in parentheses represent optional notes. For the most part you wont need 
to use the (6) or (5) notes...keeping the chords in "minor" mode. The only exeption is 
in the "Pre-Chorus";  where the [C#M] is Major (that is, Use "X46654" chord).

(I dont know the skill of your playing, so Im trying to make this as simple as possible 
to understand. So if you are pretty skillfull and know what Im trying to say already, 
then forgive the "detail" instruction.) o.k on to the song....
The main verses simply switch between these 2 chords [C#minor] & [G#minor].

After a verse, theres a [Pre-Chorus]: F#-*C#M*-A7-B (sorta slows down some..)

Then the [CHORUS] part:(whenever, wherever....)=The chorus has TWO rhythm patterns 

(1st)= C#m-A7-B-F#>E [&] (2nd)= C#m-A7-F#-B = [C#m-A7-B-F#>E-C#m-A7-F#-B](repeat)...
(*The "F#>E" represents a "Quick" move from the F# chord, to the E chord.)

After the "CHORUS": C#-A7-F#-B  (no lyrics; musical/melodie type part).

Into the 2nd verse: (same as first). [C#m] & [G#m]

[Pre-Chorus]:(same). F#-*C#M*-A7-B

[CHORUS]:(same). C#m-A7-B-F#>E-C#m-A7-F#-B(repeat)

After the "CHORUS":(same). C#-A7-F#-B 

Thats basically the whole song in a nutshell?

I am confident that it is pretty accurate. I did it on an Acoustic, so 
there is only so much I can do without distortion, etc? The guitar parts are pretty 
much "buried" within the song. Also the song I downloaded isnt 100% top quality like 
a CD version. But here it is, hope it helps. As far as the rhythm of the song its 
generically: [/- ///- /- ///]
or 1 [234]- 2[234]- 3[234]- 4[234].

Not only is this written in a way that makes it very hard to follow, but it doesn't even sound right.
