When I strum up and down up a power chord for example, the pick catches on every string instead of like all at once. So if im playing a power chord on two strings, it will sound like two notes played really fast. I didnt have this problem playing in just downstrokes.

Why would you alternate pick a power chord?

Dont pick so hard, just angle the pick so it sweeps over them and then on your up stroke do the same so it slides over it.

Polystant when your fingering the a powerchord ( sounds dirty )on the 3 fret E string ( the thick one ) it would be good if yor ring finger gently touched the the D string muting it. So when your struming up and down vigorigiously the D string won`t ring out. This is quick info but I have to go, PM me for more info later.
