3. Move your fingers, not the wrist
As I said, plucking with your fingers when it’s your first time doing it can be very uncomfortable. To compensate for the “weakness” of the picking hand’s fingers, some people tend to lock their fingers in a hook shape and pluck, rotating the wrist (similar to the slap motion). This can work at slow speeds but will hold you back once you try to speed up.
When you pluck using your wrist, you’re constantly pulling your hand away from the strings, which results in a big loss of time and precision.
That’s why, I recommend using your fingers.
The finger motion is similar to what your fingers do naturally when you scratch yourself. Using this method requires close to no wrist motion allowing your hand to stay close to the strings all the time. This will be very helpful once you start increasing the speed.
