Okay, i'm two months into guitar nad i feel ive excelled in finger style picking. i can pick songs with my fingers like def cab-ill follow you into the dark and similar level stuff, but when it comes to strumming i cant even do the simplest of strumming patterns without a pick. but i cant pick with a pick( if you get what a mean

so i can only play single strings with my fingers and i can only strumwith a pic.

Will it just click eventually or is there any real method in fingerstlye strumming?

It'll just come to you. Remember to use your nails of your fingers with a downstrum and the nail of your thumb with an upstrum. Start with some basic "1 and 2 and 3 and 4" patterns, eventually spicing it up with a sort of "1 and a 2 and 3 and 4 and a..".

It just all comes natural. I suggest some Stevie Ray Vaughn, The Doors, and Dire Straits.

Practice with both. Its hard at first, but you get the hang of it. I would also recommend (not sure what its called) playing with a pick but then using your middle, ring, and pinky fingers for finger picking. I guess a hybrid of the two... That way you can get that awesome finger picking sound and a fully pick strum. That, I find, is harder, but once you get it down its really useful.
