Hi There,

I've been trying lately to play Pearl Jam's Black Song on my guitar. I have the tab for this song but I could not easily catach the strumming technique for this song.

Can any one give tips and pointers of the strumming technique?

Thanks

Noam

It's a slow count to four, and you have to feel the chord changes. Sometimes they change chords on the beat, sometimes on the up beat, or before the 1.
I strum it in 8th note - down stroke style. So, during the first line of the song, "Sheets of empty canvas..", I've strummed 8 times down on the E chord, switching to the next chord on the word "canvas".
