Do you alternate between flat pick and finger style playing? What do you do with the pick when you are playing fingerstyle? I needed a way to store it that is easily retrievable. Pants pockets are just too much trouble.

I heard that the Langley Ukulele Ensemble uses a handy trick. They wrap a rubber band around the head stock of he uke, then slide the pick under it. It works great.

I made one modification. I don't like latex against the finish of my headstock. It can mar it over time. So I got one of those cloth covered elastic bands that women use to ponytail their hair. It was a little long, so I wrapped it double. Again, great solution.
