I just started banjo lesson around Thanksgiving 2010 and am having a great time with my banjo and practice at least 1 hour each day.
I truly am all thumbs at this time and sometimes get frustrated when my index finger sometimes hits the first string or my thumb hits the forth string when I want to play the third string.
I'm sure that this will get better with time. I love all the comments from others, makes me feel like I' not alone regarding changing chords...D to C and sliding the D to G or A is really a problem that I'm sure only time will cure.
But how long does it take for my fretting fingers to quit hurting?6 comments
