Hey… great observation.

The tab actually does start on an upstroke… I know it doesn’t look like it at first glance. I remember being confused by this also.

The lowest line on the tab is the low E string. Because of that, the arrow is showing you to strum from low (low E string) to high. To do this the arrow goes up… Low string to high string, This translates as down when playing.

This is truly a case where down is up… and up is down 🙂

Let me know if that makes sense.


Am I wrong, the tab starts on an upstroke, but the video starts on a downstroke This seems to foul up the syncopation

That’s cool! I’ve wondered how much the tab is helping students. Thanks for sharing this Sharon.

When I was working on this yesterday, I was having a hard time getting the rhythm, but when I downloaded the tab, it became quite clear–the syncopation was what I was missing out on. Sharon
