Now to get out there and get pickin'.
I have enuf to get the banjo, a tuner some finger/thumb picks, a strap (essential for street playing) etc.
I'll play wif my new toy tomorrow, then get my azz out on the st. the day after tomorrow. The main principle of busking is: Get out there and do it.
And of course will keep all who care to read this posted :-)

The best basic picking pattern is Thumb on 3rd string, Index on 2nd, Thumb on 5th and Middle finger on 1st string. And you can alternate the thumb on 3rd and then 4th string. Hope this makes sense but it is a good picking pattern to back up singing a song with...just learn a few chords and learn a few slides and hammers and away ya go! Happy pickin Alex and I look forward to hearing of your busking escapades! Go ahead and write a book!

Yes, read how the pinky and ring should be anchored on the head, and the middle ("bad" finger) should pick the 1st string, and the index the 2nd etc.
And, well, come up with a pattern and see how it sounds!
sigh ... I'd write a book if I thought there was any money in it ..... does anyone make money writing any more? I doubt it.
