Umberto Capasso from Italy writes:
My current study on banjo takes about an hour 30 up to 2 every day when I‘m lucky. I divide this time in 2 time blocks:
1 -- for Learning
2 -- for playing
Into time block # 1 the time is divided into :
1a -- play a pattern on the entire fingerboard (for stretching my fingers, and possibly different pattern every time )
1b -- play the circle of 5th
1c -- learn new song from a Hatfield book
1d -- learn new song from another book ( from Acutab for example)
The time block 2 is reserved for playing the song that I am learning. Would you be so kind to tell me if my method of learning is correct?
Do you have any suggestion for building speed ?
If not, do you have a suggestion for boost my learning and do you have a suggest for building a strong and accurate right hand?
