How do i avoid the low e string when strumming power chords with roots on higher strings? I mostly practice unplugged or on an acoustic because a 100watt 4x12 is not the most pleasant thing to hear for 2-3 hours a day every day so i am guessing i just do not hear the low e being hit like i would when i am plugged in. Are there any exercises to practice strumming accuracy? I have been playing for like 6 months i thought this stuff is suppose to be mastered by then haha.

Use the tip of your finger to slightly mute the low E string. And work on perfecting your technique. Practice, my friend... practice.

This, or you can do it the way I do sometimes.
I wrap my thumb around the neck and mute the low E with that. Although I do use my index finger tip to mute it sometimes.

Just remember, there is no right or wrong. If it works for you, then keep doing it. Just gotta find what does work.
