To go off of what xout said, put your whole hand across any fret, muting the strings and not pressing down and practice your strum pattern: D D U UDU; D D D D U U DUDU and when it is time to switch slide your hand up two frets or down two frets to get a new muted sound and keep that left hand moving.

Anyhow, follow any of these ideas if it helps you, such as continuing to strum while your forming the chord. I myself actually just slowed down the tempo of the song when I was first learning. So the entire song would sound right, but a lot slower. This will give your more then adequate time to change chords. The more and more you practice the faster the chord formations will just flow and the tempo will speed up to normal. It just takes a good bit of time to finally get the chords down in the beginning. Good Luck! ;)

I have been playing guitar for a couple of months now and I have come acquainted with many chords, I'd know alot of them without looking at the fretboard at this rate.

However, when I try to switch between chords while strumming, my strumming hand stops! It's driving me insane! I can't help it at all as it's like I am doing it subconsciously.

Does anyone have any help to make stop this stupid habit?

Thanks!


As many have already said it just takes a lot of practice. Another thing you could do though that helped me a lot is slow the tempo of the song down. When I was first learning I would slow the tempo down so it would give me more time to switch chords and keep the song going while somewhat still sounding like the song. After practice and more practice your hands will switch to chords effortlessly and the tempo will pick up to where it should be. Keep practicing and keep shredding.
