I've been playing nonstop for about two years and have gotten pretty good, especially at picking. But I still have trouble with strumming. I cannot get the consistent clean sound that I want. The pick never feels comfortable in my right hand when I strum, but it feels fine when I am soloing. Any suggestions?
maybe training your up-strum motion will help. upstrokes aren't as much trouble with soloing because you're moving your hand less, but when you have to move the pick over several strings in one quick motion it's a different thing.
