I’m eagerly practicing my somewhat-dormant banjo skills in anticipation of next month’s #CabinCamp. I’m practicing a lot and having a blast, but it is LOUD. I’ve tried a banjo bridge mute, but have found that it’s no help.
So, I’ve started practicing without picks. A little tough on the fingers at first (just like on my fretting hand), but really helps with the volume while keeping the muscle-training happening.
Has anyone else dealt with this? I see a few other posts about banjo volume but none that mentioned picks.
Thanks, as always, in advance.
