I am learning to play on a 5-String banjo. It's been 2 1/2 - 3 yrs now. So far, I've learned to play Cripple Creek and Foggy Mtn Breakdown. After playing these songs over and over a 1,000 +/- times? And now that I am somewhat comfortable with string location, I have moved on to learning as many chords as I can so I can start playing with other more experienced musicians.
While attempting to place my fingers in the correct locations to form a D7 chord, I am finding out that spreading my fingers over 4 frets is nothing short of a miracle!
Is there some exercises I can perform between my practice sessions which will give my fingers more mobility in making these 4 fret chords?
Thanks Guys & Gals. Everyone here has been so great. Everyone has contributed so much. I hope in the one day I can be someone who can contribute to those just starting out.
