New Strike Adjustments

Long time, no talk...I haven't posted in quite a while. I've been sidetracked by my open back banjo. In doing so, I noticed something curious...Usually, I'm a middle finger striker. For whatever reason, I started striking with my pointer/index. I noticed the tone wasn't nearly as "muddy". It's clearer, crisper. I haven't decided if it's an anatomical difference, or I'm not as deep into the stings, or something else.So, in some ways, I'm kind of starting over. The 2-3 millimeters is a HUGE…See More

Apologies...

For whatever reason, I feel the need to make an apology for my lack of posting/activity lately. I kind of plateaued and returned to the fundamentals of Briggs, Converse, and the occasional Buckley (for me, Buckley can be a very perishable skill). Unfortunately, I'm not overly enamored with any of the tunes especially, so I haven't recorded anything lately...Anyways, I'm still here!! LolSee More
