Im noticing all kinds of threads on strumming patrns and strumming for certain songs. I never had any problems with that. But when i play songs, be it simple 4 chord songs, or songs with rifs and stuff, i always strum like i fell, not how the original artist does it. If the recording has two down strums, i can sometimes play 6 up and down strokes, or 1 upstroke ect. Is this ok, or does the general guitarists comunity frown upon it?

For simple strumming songs it's fine, yes, as long as you're in time and it doesn't change the mood of the song.
