Has it been a week already? We are back with the next installment of our 5 string banjo for absolute beginners series, and this week we are moving to the F chord.
So far, Bob (bobhamilton.net) has covered the basics of the banjo, as well as the G and D7 chords, and then the C chord. This week, we start to incorporate the F chord.
The F chord is the first 4-finger chord that you will learn in this series. Its shape begins with the D7 chord, before adding your ring and pinky fingers to create the F chord, as Bob displays in this video.
Be sure to make contact with the string with the tip of your finger, not the pad and as I mentioned last week, don't press too hard. A lighter touch will help you much more down the road.
Its been a couple of weeks now. How are you getting on? Are you enjoying these lessons? Anything your are struggling with? Let us know in the comments.
