    I'd recommend learning with a pick. It will help if you want to try electric later, and the finger picking will be easier with more experience. I personally alternate between the two. I tend to have songs I play with and others without.

    Check out Tommy Emmanuel if you want to see finger plucking/strumming at it's best!

    plectrum- it's quicker to play the strings when using chords.
