Hi @BanjoBen Can you offer any tips on improving tone clarity up-the-neck
So I am currently working on one of John Hartford’s licks from a closed position. I am barring the first two strings at the 7th fret with the index finger, middle finger on the 3rd string 8th fret. ring finger stretched across the fingerboard on the 5th string at the 9th fret. Arpeggio picking pattern 231 515 1 (1st string is fretted at the 10th with pinky. ) 5th string fretted at the 9th then lift pinky play 123
I seem to have my fingers placed correctly, all close to the fret wire, fingers don’t appear to be touching other strings. picking seems clean enough yet the strings don’t ring out as I might expect.
Anything you could suggest to improve tone clarity would be welcomed.
