    @SubSailer671 Thanks, that's very cool!

    Griff Hamlin, Steve Stine and Justin Sandercoe are awesome, aren't they?

    I've been wanting to go back to Talkin' 'Bout a Revolution for a while, a song that I had tried to play before but it never sounded quite right. And yesterday evening, I stumbled upon an extract of the TV show Later With Jools Holland on the BBC Music Youtube Channel. The director made sure that Tracy - and both her hands - were filmed (which is quite rare, usually directors focus on the perfomer's face).
    That's how I realized that most online tutorials suggested a strumming pattern that was probably not fully accurate. Today, I had my guitar lesson so I showed the video to my guitar instructor and he felt the same. I thought that it might perhaps interest other beginners as this song is quite a campfire classic.

    So here is Tracy on Later With Joolz Holland :

    And here is what I think she does (I'm trying to play at half speed to show it below) :

    Ha! That's the same chord progression in Griff Hamlin's video from today.

    It is not a song I play, so I can't comment on the strumming pattern. It sounds like you have it pretty close.
