well i just started playing guitar (on and off for about a year) and it's still hard to strum well. take for example: Dashboard Confessional - Hands Down. fast strumming up,down,up,down,up,down, etc while palm muting it. even with a soft pick, it's hard for me. i have an ovation celebrity. i dont know if this matters but im left handed playing a right-handed guitar. are there any strumming exercises that might help or is it just something that will come with time?
