I gave up on the pick. I found it completely ruined my feel and rhythm. I was generally not liking guitar with a pick and did not get back into it until I chucked it. Love playing with my thumb. I’m in no rush to get an amp either. Quieter and softer works for me. Call me crazy.

Different strokes for different folks. :smiley:

Me too. I keep trying it, I do think it would be good to be able to play with a pick, but I much prefer to play without.

I’ve tried again out of a feeling (guilt?) that I should be able to do it. I tried easing myself into it by using my thumb and index pinched using the nail of the index as a pick. I think I could do it now, but I don’t prefer it. It’s basically just a primitive amplifier. I play for my cats and maybe my significant other, but she’d rather I keep it down anyway. I do most of my practicing late at night.

@LunaC Have you watched this video?

Oh yes, many times in fact. Thanks for asking.
