What guitar rhythm do you recommend for Five Hundred Miles

Resolved Question:

What guitar rhythm do you recommend for Five Hundred Miles?

Expert:  Joan replied 2 years ago.

Hello,

It is hard to try and explain the Rythym pattern for 500 Miles, so I found a You Tube Video that explains about playing the chords and the melody.

 

The instructor is very good and goes over the various ways of playing this song on the Acoustic Guitar.

 

 

You can view the Video Here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K_OF4PEHaYI&feature=related

 

 

I hope this is helpful, if not please let me know by hitting reply and I will be happy to try and help you further. Joan

Thanks. It was an interesting video. He does a nice job with the song. It is a little more complicated than what I was looking for. I was looking for a simple strumming pattern.
Expert:  Joan replied 2 years ago.

Hello,

I found a link with some strum patterns: http://banglachords.blogspot.com/2010/10/mr-hall-hundred-miles-anjan-dutta-strum.html

 

The Key with this song is it is in 4/4 time which makes your strumming more flexible. Joan

Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Thanks.
Here is an example of strumming pattern that I can read. It shows where the down and up strokes are in relation to the beat.

D D U U D U
1 + 2 + 3 + 4 + Ramblin Man
Allman Brothers, The

The strumming patterns below which were on the web site you sent me to seems less clear to me. I am guessing the first pattern below is the same as the above pattern.

- |D(DU)U(DU)| or |D(UD)(DD)(UD)|

Hi,

I found a You Tube vodeo that teaches strumming patterns that may help. The most important thing I feel is the Chords and the strumming patterns are secondary as they are more fexible. Try and see if this video seems to help: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r5MxIANvsA8
