Discuss the Banjo lesson: Banjo Hand Positions



We’ll discuss anchoring with our pick hand and how to position our fretting hand!


This lesson helped me to realize why my left shoulder has been sore when practicing. I have been holding my fret hand (and whole arm) back so far that the neck is pointing slightly behind me. Moving my hand forward a few inches to a position that is more natural and more parallel to my sitting position has relieved this shoulder discomfort a lot. Probably been holding the neck at this awkward angle to see the frets and the strings better. Not playing with a strap at the moment. A strap may have helped put the Banjo in a more proper position as well.


Thanks for this Ben! very helpful :slight_smile:
