I'm trying to learn how to play "Bring Me to Life" by Evanescence on guitar, and I'm following Christian Torres's cover on YouTube:
Only problem is, I suck at reading music, and I'm having trouble trying to figure out the strumming patterns that he's using. Ideally I'd like to translate the tab onto a chart with a down or up strum for each sixteenth note, but I can't read it well enough to figure out the timing.
Specifically during the choruses (0:45 for example), how would you determine that strumming pattern? For example, in the image below, I see that the first note in each measure has a straight vertical line under it, which I'm guessing is just a quarter note? Then the next three have a horizontal line going across the bottom... which is an eighth note? The note in between those two also has its own horizontal line partially sticking out which is a sixteenth note? (Why is it only partially sticking out and not connected to the ones right and left of it?)
I feel like if I can learn enough to just make sense of the chorus then I'll have enough to figure out the rest of the song.
This is the type of chart I'm trying to translate it to (I count sixteenth notes in my head with "1 e & a"):
