Pen and Ukulele?

Since I started playing the Ukulele, I have always heard that the pen is not necessary to play it, even a few days ago we were asked the same thing in Ukuleleria.
That is why I started to investigate, what is the reason why it is not convenient to touch the Uku with pen? đŸ€”

Disadvantage


It gives power to the sound, but it sounds more like Guitar than Ukulele, the essence of our beautiful little friend is lost.

.

.

With pen you can't do fan strumming!

The nib wears your ukulele faster than normal strumming, so your ukulele can suffer a lot of damage đŸ˜„

He could suffer an accident like the one on Willie Nelson's guitar

Advantages


Some people consider that strumming is a bit painful at first.Some educators recommend felt spikes for the delicate fingers of children. If, in all possible ways, strumming is painful, try using a pick.

Although the point is difficult with pen exceptions like Ledward Kaapana that uses special finger nibs and thus enhance its sound.

If you have decided to try with a pen Avoid normal guitar picks: They are designed for metal ropes.

The classic pick For ukulele it is the felt spike. There are even polifieltro barbs with a rigid core that provides a powerful attack without that characteristic "click" of the plastic. Barbs made from leather or rubber are two good alternatives.
