Now, if your strumming with your hand, all you have to do is only use two fingers: your thumb and your middle finger. as you come down for your first strum, GENTLY glide your middle finger nail on the top of the strings while still maintaining speed. as you finish your first strum, your thumb should already be at the bottom of the strings, you then glide your thumb nail UP on top of the strings.NOTE: you barely have to move your hand at all with this type of strumming. then continue to repeat. this is a good technique because you can control the volume and intensity of your strum simply by how hard you glide your fingers.
With pick strumming, its almost the exact same thing. here is a diagram of how to pick strum.
Notice how the pick is beign slanted at each strum to provide leats resistance to the strings.
