Using Justin's App - question from beginner

Can someone help me with the bubbles while trying to play along with the app?
I assume the large bubbles are when to strike the chord so does that mean the little bubbles between are like & , ex; 1&2&3&4 ?Hope my question is clear enough TIA

Yep, that’s the way I interpret them. And you may feel happier starting off by just hitting one beat in the bar to start with and then onto 2 and then 4. Or - you might want to just dive straight in and aim for all 4 immediately.

Large bubbles are the down strums, little dots would be the “and” or up strums depending on your strumming pattern.

Hello and welcome.

If you are an absolute beginner go for strumming on the 1 and let it rin for the whole bar. Then strum on the 1 and 3, and when you feel comfortable with that go for 4 strums per bar. After that the world is your oyster … experiment with whichever pattern feels good for you and the song.
