I think this is a great acoustic strumming pattern for The Way by "Fastball." You can hear a pattern similar to this starting in verse two. I am playing the strum slowly. I hope everyone will play along!
Here's a great "Campfire" strum for Pink Floyd's Wish You Were Here.
D D U U D D U U
D = Down
U = Up
Here is a video of the melody. You can play this for the intro to the song and you can play it as the interlude between the verses. I'll add another video soon with the chord strums between the melody notes.
And here's a video adding one simple strum on beat two of each measure.
