practice what though?...

whatever your playing. Listen to the music then copy. Even watch people play off youtube and figure it out.

As they said in the King of Comedy "you are at the bottom -- that is a good place to start...."
Stop showing off and play the music!

try a little thing like this below, you can swap and add chords at your discretion. it's just the rhythm you want to get down,

you want to be looking at keeping your wrist in constant motion - not pausing between strums and stuttering.

notice there are two consecutive downstrokes at the start so make sure you follow this rhythm or your strumming will be inconsistent and lack fluency.

use the strumming pattern provided on the first chord for every other chord.
