Minstrel Banjo

For enthusiasts of early banjo

I'm trying to get the right hand movements to work on

one of the triplets on the STRIKES from the Rice Book

The area i'm needing help with is labeled FIFTH EXAMPLE: A TRIPLE

the one I need an explanation on is the last one. (102 021 sequence)

starting on an inside string is... I believe its called an "alternate string pull off)


I'd appreciate someone telling me which fingers are the best choice to use 

for the first two notes so that the rest of the triplet sequence flows naturally

without destroying the timing involved.


hope this makes sense

1st finger holds down the second string at first fret. The third finger pulls off the first string, and then presses the second fret ( the third note ).

Does that help? Got Skype?

Aaahh...the ol' left hand pluck!    :)

So that explains the first part- 102...but then Tim can you finish naming the fingers for the rest of that sequence- the 021 part, coming right after the 102 ?
