Cool pics Tojo. Welcome aboard. Question, I'm learning OT banjo and I cant seem to get decent volume, should I keep my picking finger stiff to get more volume, or loose like my wrist? Help!

Thanks Tommy, Thats what I thought. I have been working on trying to get clean bum diddy's and drop thumbing but when I tried to play some tunes with the guys up to speed all clarity went to hell and volume became nonexistent. I knew I can work on the clarity (repetition breeds confidence, confidence breeds clarity) but the volume thing has been stumping me.

I have heard about the backwards fingerpick thing for clawhammer. I am going to have to try it. Right now my fingernail is at optimum length and I know that conversely means its going to break at any moment. It would be so much better if I didnt have to deal with all that.

Hey Tommy,
Good to hear from you. I guess you will have to call me along with Dr. Mikey at 2 a.m. . I will be waiting!!
I really wish I could come down though, but I can't find anyone to see to the animals. I just have too darn many.

Talk to you soon.

Best Wishes,

Hazel.

Hi Tommy, Thanks for the freindship. I had a great at Kaufman Kamp this year. Looking forward to seeing you next year. By the way, My daughter will be starting at UGA in the fall. Perhaps when I'm in town we can pick a little.
Take care,
Terry
