I am only on my 4th lesson (newbie for sure) and the teacher says I have to learn with a pick before moving on to fingers. I find that I am more comfortable using my fingers, but of course I want to listen to my teacher. Anyone else feel this way and any teachers out there want to express their thoughts on this? Sometimes, when I practice, I find that if I put the pick down, I am better able to concentrate on the chords and such. Is this just a frustration I need to overcome and it will eventually feel more natural as time goes by?
Thanks for any comments!
