Yikes! Both my playing fingernails broke!

Posted by flowerofthewest on Saturday, March 1, 2008

I learned to play banjo with my middle finger and since I couldn't seem to get the louder sound I wanted from it, recently learned to play with my index finger.  Much more sound and control.  It's been coming along quite nicely!  I have always found it difficult to play with a pick, so changing fingers really helped.

Well, of course sod's law - I was building computers at work and both playing fingernails broke.  GRRR.  and I was going to a jam that night.  I HAD to wear a pick or not be heard...  I played with pick on, but it didn't go very well.

So NOW I am practicing daily with the pick on out of necessity, but I am sure in the long run, it's the best thing...
