Forum - Banjo Ben Clark

Sharing newbie mistakes

When i started playing the banjo in 2016 My picking hand was all over the map. At one point my pinky was using the bridge as leverage. Well a year of bad habbits later I found @benclark basics lesson ‘Banjo Hand Positions’ - ’ Pick Hand Anchor Techniques’. My speed and accuracy improved a lot.


I’m going through the terrible twos. Two years in and I have had to go back to the start. I think partly tension in hand but also partly some arthritis that has set in. That really sucks as its make playing harder to do.


Great to hear!
