First, realize that it just numbers. If you can count it, you can play it. Count with me, especially on some of the faster strums and you'll get a grip on the technique more quickly.
Next, stay loose. I use my entire body to strum. My arm is like a whip - not stiff at all, and loose until the point the pick hits the strings.
Finally, I use a thin pick to achieve this technique. I've done it in years past with heavy and medium picks but recently I've found I'm getting the desired results with a thin pick (the thinnest I can find, actually). Combining these numbered strums has limitless possibility so fire up the backing track and have fun with it.
I find it quite easy (so far!) to navigate, and found the "where do I start" to be very helpful! I'm getting there!!
I LOVE the forum, too. I've never been one to use forums, but the GT forum is full of great people and helpful information at ALL levels! Congrats on a WONDERFUL site!!Good job!
