Strumming
There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
An obscure, but very nice melodic song from 1987.  There are 3 chord versions here: the
4:04 single, the 6:38 blues mix, and the 8:00 extended version.  Both the single and the
blues mix were available on the UK CD single along with 2 other tunes, and on the 
Silencers first album "A Letter from St. Paul".  I haven't found where the extended version
came from, but it may be a US only mix.  All 3 are great tunes on their own.  Times 
shown are elapsed time from the start; by Marty Lurvey.  http://www.thesilencers.info/
