This is where the strings contact Bob Carlin's cocked thumb. Note: this is NOT actually Bob's thumb.

Glenn, your photos and posts on banjo position have been very helpful to me.  I had not seen this photo before.  I think I'll try striking the string in the middle of the thumb pad (or at least closer to the middle) and see how that feels and sounds. I must have soft hands because the inside of my thumb is tender for a day or so after a long jam or dance.
