Hi Danny. I have a question about pick hand training. I have been playing the banjo now for about 8 years and the muscles in my forearm have always tired after about 5 minutes of playing. I can play for no longer and it feels like it is seriously holding me back as it restricts the amount of time I can practice. Any pointers, exercises or advice you could give on how to deal with this would be much appreciated.
i don't know what to say. the hand/arm should be very relaxed...could that be an issue? make sure you are breathing too. maybe a visit to an alternative medicine specialist.
Do you tinker with your banjos much, or just find one you like and stick with it?Danny Barnes responded on 02/14/2014 Next question
Got any pointers for that rhythmic strumming that you do with the ring finger on your right hand? How did you come to start using that technique?
Also you should write a song about geoducks.
