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.
