lighter touch

Wednesday, March 31, 2010

 I was noticing a lot of fret wear (I thought this odd, for only owning her for 7 months...).  I did a bit of reading up, and the Deering website recommended using a lighter touch while fretting notes.  I have been trying this out, and wow!  It solves quite a few problems, actually.  I feel less tension while playing, and I seem to be more accurate, to boot.  Perhaps I was pressing too hard because of "learner's concentration".  You know: If I fret the note really hard, it will be really right, right?  wrong!  lesson learned.

I just started learning clawhammer style banjo, and I love it! I would love to meet other clawhammer players, learn from others, and hopefully find a teacher in the Toronto area. I'd also like to learn a bit of Seeger-style picking one of these days.
