Fixing a loud strum

General mountain dulcimer or music discussions

I just recorded myself for the first time and I was surprised by how loud my strum is.  It was loud enough that it could pass as accompanying percussion!  In case I am not using the proper term I am specifically referring to a clicking noise that is coming from the pick hitting the strings.   I tried a thinner pick (although the thinnest that I have is .60) and it didn't help much.  Anyone have any thoughts on reducing the strum noise?
