I played electric guitar and bass for years, but I'm not using a pick in the video. I'm using the pad of my thumb for the melody and strumming the chords with the nail on my index finger. Does look like I'm holding a pic in the video tho lol. The alternate thumb pad and index nail approach for this piece is outlined in the youtube video James does to introduce this book.Wow! I play the same arrangement but with 4 fingers.. that's pretty good pick control! Did you play another instrument with a pick or decided to use it for ukulele?
That book by James Hill is amazing.
Once the strap opened up it was like a whole new instrument.Well done! I am working on that piece as well right now, but I don't sound nearly as good as you. The strumming approach is very interesting, might try that. Had to chuckle at the floral print strap in your spec list -- probably changes the tone of your uke a lot
