    A pick or plectrum is a small, thin piece of plastic or other material that is used to strum or pluck the strings of a musical instrument, typically a guitar or a ukulele. It provides a firm grip and allows for more precise and controlled strumming, producing a clearer and more consistent sound. Using a pick can also help to reduce the strain on the fingers and prevent them from getting sore during prolonged playing.

By using a capo, musicians can easily change the key of a song without having to learn new chord shapes or fingerings. "Capo tasto" is another term used to refer to the same instrument.
