Ukulele Video Lessons - Finger Picking Techniques. When someone is learning to play the ukulele, they are often wondering how they can make their picking on their ukulele sound fuller to the people who are listening to it. Here’s some finger picking techniques that you can use.
The first technique is to pick the A string, which is the bottom string, the E string, which is the next string up from the A string and finally the G string, which is the top string on the ukulele. You pick the A string with your middle finger, the E string with your pointer finger, and the G string with your thumb. You can also use your pointer finger to pick the A and the E, leaving your thumb to pick the G.
Another technique is to pick the C first with the thumb, then pick the E string with your pointer, then pick the G with your thumb, then pick the A with your middle finger. It makes a really pretty run when you get going fast after a lot of practice.
Once you have gotten both techniques down and you are doing well with them, you can combine the two of them and see what it does. These are just two of the many techniques that people have come up with. You can do some experimenting of your own and come up with some of your own combinations of different notes. You may just surprise yourself.
