Tom thanks for letting me know about your first AVOYP.
Been separated from my guitar for the last few days at a family wedding so not had a chance to give the strumming pattern a go.
Nice job and congrats on your first post. Sounded good, nice and clean. Enjoyed the drums backing tracks as well. The phrasing/strumming pattern was different to what I expected. You would definitely sing over it differently to how you would sing the original. That’s not to say it’s “wrong” just different.
