Banjo Practice Tip:
Each hand must learn to work with the other. Typically, the right hand will go faster than the left because it is repeating patterns. The key is to play at a slow pace and let the left hand catch up in a manner which allows you to play smoothly. Practice one line at a time-over and over- until you can play without looking at your music. Begin slowly or your hands will become tired and 'crampy'.
The beauty of banjo picking is the clarity of individual notes-not the speed you can rattle them off. Believe me, speed will come in time, and in the long run you will appreciate all the hard work you put in before playing at top speed. Keep pickin' and grinnin' Terrie
