Hello, I've been playing ukulele for about a year now, but have never done much picking. What are some good songs for me to start with? Thanks for any help!

i like to pick anything kinda folky...like john denver or cat stevens....Oh tip to help you learn to finger pick is to remember to always keep the pinky or pinky and ring finger of your picking hand planted in the same spot on the soundboard of your uke....it gives your brain a reference point and lets you find your strings more easily...good luck!

I'm learning Ukulele Mike's version of Scarborough Fair. Watch it on YouTube.

Wilfried Welti's solobuch is a great start on fingerpicking. :)
