    3. Uke on!
    My favorite piece of finger terminology is "chico" the 5th element of the PIMAC. I want to use the pinky merely for the reason that its name is chico.

    There is a nice guitar pro file of jingle bells. It is alternate bass (see the photo below). I play only with thumb and index finger. You need TuxGuitar (Free) or similar app to open the file.

    Thank you ZZ, I will give this a try, much appreciated

    Here a quick video, you'll notice that the index finger is not actually picking.

    Thank so much for taking the time to share these techniques Campbell, I did try this method & found it to be quite a natural way to pick

    Camsuke,

    beautifully picked. I do the same on guitar when i use a thumb pick. I find the index finger just feels too crowded

    Thumb index and middle for me. Whether guitar or uke, thatís all Iíve been able to pick up. Especially since I always play alternating thumb, if I try to add fingers with a uke then I get double thumps on a string too often.

    My son uses the thumb, bird and ring fingers as well when he's picking acoustic guitar. I figure that's because when he plays his Tele, he holds a flat pick with his thumb and index and picks with the bird and ring fingers.

    I use the index or index and bird when I'm using alternating thumb. Usually two fingers on guitar, but one on ukulele.

    That's how it started with me - learning hybrid picking on the guitar and then dropping the pick when it came to the ukulele.
