(The easiest way to learn to pick and strum)
The most basic strumming technique is picking with your hands and fingers, starting with your left (pinky) hand, which is the finger you’ll be strumming with in the middle of your song.
If you practice this strumming technique to death, you’ll find that picking with your left hand is easier for a lot more people to do than picking with your right hand.
One big reason why it’s easier for a lot more people to do is because it’s very consistent. If you do it to death and you don’t change, it can come out a bit sloppy.
Most players don’t change their grip too much, and so they can use a pick without too much trouble.
As for picking with your fingers, it’s more like a different position. The first thing you want to do is to make sure you get your thumb into the “instruments” button (i.e.) the left “tongue” button, and then tap the left “grip” button. The thumb on the pick will be slightly more sensitive, so practice a bit before trying to pick with it.
Now grab the string (the tip of your thumb) and put it around the string (the side of your pick). With one hand, start strumming (grabbing the strings). The other hand grabs the string (the sides of your backhand). Make sure you don’t move your fingers back to the “instruments” button.
Don’t worry about your thumb, it’s not going to be as sensitive as your finger.
Now keep your fingers in the right position, but don’t let them move. This ensures that your thumb is just behind the finger.
When you are fully strummed (with only one hand!), the string will hit the palm part of your neck lightly, making a “snap”. The side of your pick will come from your wrist, and your thumb will be in front.
When you are fully strummed with both hands, you should hear a snap like when you are playing the song. If not, try putting you thumb under the string. Don’t worry if a little bit of your thumb doesn’t make the cut. If you can’t do it, then you need to get the finger more used to the strumming process.
The second thing you want to do is to change your grip
