It looks like you are using thumb-index-middle in this technique? I have a batter flow with thumb-middle-index for some reason, is it a bad habit to use this finger pattern (will it trip me up if I try to play different songs)?

I'm with you here. Try this experiment...

With your picking hand, try drumming on a tabletop one finger at a time. For me at least, pinky/ring/middle/index flows a lot faster and easier than going the opposite direction.

Yea, I'm the same way. I'm a percussionist so I do a lot of table drumming haha. It actually seems like all of that will end up paying off with some of these ukulele techniques :p
