Chorus

For the chorus the strumming pattern is simply down, down-up, down (V V^V). so you play first chord G on the first down strum, and hit the C on the final down strum, and change chords on the upstroke. During the chorus Guitar two should play the guitar 2 inro riff over each line of the chorus. Then I saw her GfaceC, G now CIm a belGiever C G CNot a Gtrace C G of Cdoubt in my Gmind.C G CIm in Glove, Cooh Im a beGliever! I couldnt Fleave her if I tried.
