I don't get how you do it; down up down down up down down up. every time I try, the other side of my brain completely shuts down and I can't sing and/or change chords.

It took me like 2 weeks of playing it pretty constantly to get it... Don't give up cause when you can do it it's quite fun :)
Try doing it slower first? Half the time the chord change is only moving one finger anyway

I had been just strumming down with the appropriate accents within the bar. Funny how we hear different patterns differently, I hadn't even considered it might be strummed differently.

I've been a big Frank Turner fan since 2009 when I lived in England for a year. Have seen him twice in the UK and twice in the US now. Excellent stuff.

I've recently picked up an acoustic guitar and want to learn some of his stuff. I noticed that he uses some unique strumming patterns, but they sound beautiful. This one in particular. I've watched many videos of this song but still can't quite get it. What was posted here is helpful, but the order of up/down strumming doesn't help me much without some type of rhythm. I've tried "Down up down down up down down up" but it sounds nothing like it (I'm doing DUD DUD DU), but have tried variations and can't quite get it.

Could someone who knows how to play this kindly do a video of this pattern slowly to demonstrate how it is done? I'd actually need this for several of his songs, but we'll start with this.

Many thanks guys.

Better than nothing. Would someone mind doing a video showing the strum pattern in slow and then regular speed? Many thanks.
