Folks I see people using a feather as aplectrumwith the butt end down and some say thatthis adds scratches to the fret board and may be hard on strings.

This is the best video on using a feather as aplectrumin myopinion,that I have seen.

Donald shows how to trim the feather, than he holds it with thenaturalrounding of thefeather horizontally (not vertically) over the strings, then with a whipping motion strums.

He shows how to trim to add increasedvolumeand also effect to the strumming.

Check it out and give your critique.
