Strumming is easier especially as a learner will only know a few chords to begin with, picking well takes a lot of practise and some skill. A combination of both is best to my ears :)

Best Answer

Strumming is prolly a bit easier to pick up but experiment with both and see which works best for you cuz i do mostly fingerpicking i love it

Best Answer

Can you do any song fingerpicking style?

Best Answer

Finger picking can be hard on your still soft fingers, I have a cheap classic guitar so I do both the strumming and the picking with my fingers, wouldnt recommend doing the same with steel strings, unless you want chipped nails lol (yes ive tried!), strumming is way more fun too I should add.

Strumming is easier but fingerpicking sounds a lot better.. I find fingerpicking a bit complicated to learn though.. well, if you're trying to learn it all by yourself that is..

Chords are the easiest. Read my story if you want.
