I am self taught Ukulele Player and playing Ukulele for almost one and half years now and can play almost all the open chords. Learnt everything with internet resources. And this is my first string instrument experience.
My learning journey (and almost sure, everyone's would be) consisted of drastically slow sync up with chord switches while keeping the strum going on. It was a process, that I had to struggle for a long time and took me months to do it in an acceptable way. Same happened for some two to three finger picking patterns that I learnt.
I am planning to learn guitar next. My biggest worry, is if I have to restart all the journey of strumming and chord switching once again.
So, my question is, if I learn to strum and pick once on Ukulele, will the same learning be applied to other string instruments like Guitar, Mandolin, Banjo etc. or there will again be a learning curve with these instruments?
Having said that, I have seen guitar players who easily pick up any string instrument
