Hey guys. My music class is doing a Beatles show in a couple weeks and one of the songs I am doing is I'm Happy Just to Dance With You. I'm on rhythm guitar and if you listen to the track there's this strumming that i cant quite get the feeling for. Does anyone know of a videos that could help me? Or any advice to help me break down the strumming? Thanks:)

Also you might want to take a look at this............




You might want to start with a thin pick to get the hang of that strum pattern. Also notice this guy is not strumming straight up and down but seems to be strumming at quite an angle. It's all in the wrist on this one! Also I think it's critical that you grow sideburns and wear a tie when you play this or any early Beatles tune. Whew, I almost forgot to tell you that. :)

The Beatles had some of the best chord progressions especially in the early days.
