Danny - Just got a banjo and am transitioning from fingerstyle guitar. Is it best to begin using fingerpicks? I am having a difficult time adjusting to both the change in strings and fingerpicks at the same time. Could I learn to use the picsk later. Love Get Myself Together
Thank you -- Howard G.
oh heck i'd just play the durned thing and worry about them picks later. you'll get it figured out.
I have been playing banjo a few years just by theory, the methods you show in the instruction videos, making up my own arrangements and not really trying to figure out specifically how anybody else is doing it. I am loving it, keeping myself entirely entertained and amused, but wondering if I am somehow shirking or missing out by not copying any old masters (it just seems impossibly hard to copy other people's style)?
Bless you for being so generous as to answer these questions!
Is there any chance you could listen to a material from my 'Power Duo' (a single we released) on bandcamp? I do not want to be annoying, so I will not post the link without your response.
Thanks for everything on banjo music!
