About 15 years ago I quit playing the banjo cause my index started missing strings ..after reading on this forum I learned it has a name "FOCAL DYSTONIA". No matter how hard I tried I would miss the string so I sold my banjo and just give up..
Well recently I borrowed a banjo from a friend and sure enough my index still acted funny..One night I was goofin around and put the pick on my ring finger and after a few minutes I could play a song ... I was so thrilled you would have thought I won the lottery!! my playing is slow and the tone is not that great but its getting better all the time.. I hope this helps someone out there that has the same problem
