D-DU-UDU (where the dash indicates skip the strum)

EDITED to correct the goof, sorry about that!

You are quite right, thank you! I was trying to pull it back out of my automatic muscle memory and didn't quite get it! Edited to reflect your version.

This is one I've been working on today and it took me a while to work out the dtrumming pattern. Weirdly, back in the day I probably played this rhythm with barely a thought to its intricacies, but the moment I started working on it with a strict, technical eye, I was all over the place for about an hour before I started getting a handle on it. I'm probably going to sit down with a metronome on a slow-ish 4/4 rhythm to get tighten it up, but also work on chord changes as well. As with anything, it's as much to do the time you put in to master it.
