how do i strum something that has more than one note to be strummed at the same time, without using the PIMA technique (5 finger picking)?

for example, this is what im talking about:

E-|--------------------0-----0|--0-----------------0----------|
B-|------------1-----1-----1--|-------3------3-----3------3-|
G-|-2---2---2-----2-----2---|-----4------4-----4-----4-----|
D-|-2-2---2-----2-----2-----|--------2------2-----2--------|
A-|-0--------------------------|--------------------------------|
E-|-----------------------------|--0--------------------------|

E-|-0-----------1-----------|-0---------------------3----|
B-|-----1-----1-----3-----3|-------1-----1-3---0-----0|
G-|---2-----2-----2-----2--|-----0-----0-----0-----0--|
D-|-2-----2-----0-----3----|---2-----2-----3-----3----|
A-|-0------------------------|----------------------------|
E-|--------------------------|-3--------------3----------|

how would i play those at the same time

You either have to mute the notes inbetween and strum or use your fingers, you could try picking the bottom note and plucking the others with your fingers but it isn't recommended.

Woot for Beethoven.

"mute the notes inbetween and strum or use your fingers" = Completely wrong.

"picking the bottom note and plucking the others with your fingers" = Completely correct.
