Hello, well i was playing some acoustic and realized i strum with my pointer finger and flick it across the strings. Does anyone else do this? or does everybody use their thumbs? I find it easier to use my finger and just flick it than use my thumb, but it doesnt sound as good.

yea, but im talking like your finger picking a song and it requires a chord.
for example , i was playing I will follow you into the dark, and it went from fingering a F chord to just playing a F chord.
Edit- arpeggio an F then playing the chord

i use a thumbpick for things like that, or if it involves harmonics, its better with a thumb pick.
