Discuss the Banjo lesson: Basic Major Banjo Chords

Welcome, @austinc2804! Here are a few tips:

  1. Make sure you’re not leaning/slouching too far one way. A common mistake is to lean over the banjo to see the fingerboard better.
  2. As @Archie suggested, try adjusting your wrist angle one way or another.
  3. Make sure your fingernails are cut short enough for proper fretting.

It’s not letting me add pics or idk how.
I’ve tried different wrist and finger positions but it still touches every time. I can do a partial C and d7 with no issues.
