hi guys. i m learning to play the guitar n i think that IGT is a great place for this. i m very good at picking n can play lot of songs. but, my problem is that I CANT STRUM. i don know why. but i m very poor at that. i know all the basic 24 chords by heart. i also know the slash chords, sus chords, 7th, 9th chords as well as some barre shapes. but i simply cant utilise these in strumming songs. i find it hard to switch chords quickly n cleanly. i also hav a problem with strumming patterns. plz guys help me out. give me some ways to learn to strum. do i need to learn more chords? if yes then how many because they are endless. i would be thankful if someone gives me some guitar exercises to develop my strumming and for quick chord switching. also plz clarify on strumming patterns. eg a few days ago i saw a song on IGT with the pattern d-du-du. after that the chords were as say eg A........Bb.......G.......Em now is this pattern to be applied to the chords together or individually??
