Discuss the Mandolin lesson: Basic Mandolin Rhythm- Part 5

Wow, you’re getting serious now.

Hi Banjo Ben, enjoying all of your lessons as I play a little of all. Anyway, refreshing my mandolin playing and was noting that you lay your index finger more flatly against the E string to mute it when chopping, my tendency is to use the meat of my index finger closer to my palm, seems to naturally mute it out. Do you see this as a mechanical issue that i need to change.

Nope, that sounds good to me!
