Just a quick question. Is it ok to use a pick when playing the uke? I know the traditional way is to use fingernails but I am really not liking that too much. Of course the fingernails is a better sound than using the thumb, which I was doing for a while (yep, played guitar before.) So I have some picks that are .71 thick and I like the sound, louder and crisper than the fingernails. I have a concert uke.
I guess I know it's not the traditional way but I am asking because I am worried about wearing out my strings (my guitars have steel strings). I am not concerned about being traditional. Anyone out there do this?
Would a felt pick be better?
Sorry if this has been posted before. I am new here... I looked for previous posts on the topic but didn't see any.
