Check this out and then tell me if it’s good for finger picking!
Of course thats Colin Tribe playing and he can make anything sound good.
Personally, I think double coursed instruments take a bit of getting used to… I have a six string and it’s beautiful played finger-style. It’s just something I haven’t spent enough time on to get it down smoothly… No fault to the instrument, it’s me and my sporadic practice habits.
I’ve heard the same thing about eight stringed ukes, they’re for strumming. Nope, they’re ready for whatever you throw at em. And I think they sound best when you do BOTH!
