Regarding this very heavily used pull-off (or push-off):
So I can play this pretty ok since it’s so commonly used but every one I’ve seen do it where it sounds REALLY good and clean does basically a “flick” with their middle finger (almost like they are flipping the bird with their left hand) so I guess that would be considered a “push-off”?
When I do it I can’t quite get that flicking motion clean because I end up almost ALWAYS (even doing it real slow) hitting the 4th string with my left hand middle finger as I flick it. (and I even have a wide-neck banjo!)
Anyway, I have tried and tried to get it down like that but cannot seem to get past hitting the fourth string accidently.
I’ve gotten to the point where I just kind of gave up on doing it with that flicking motion but I want to try to nip that one in the bud earlier than later.
Any advice about how to do that one and avoid hitting the 4th string?
