clean flat picking on bouzouki
I guess this could apply to guitar, banjo, mando etc. as well.
Struggling right now with getting clean playing on bouzouki with tunes, actual melodies. It’s mostly to do with open strings ringing out which don’t fit in the key of the tune.
For example, a jig I’m playing at the moment, Rakes of Kildare, once I’ve finished with the low e on the d-string at the very beginning and am playing a-b-c-d sequence on the a-string, the d string keeps on ringing (albeit faintly) once I’ve lifted my index finger off the low e (like a mini pull-off). I was wondering how I might remedy this kind of problem which I’m sure happens with other combinations of notes.
Furthermore, could anyone offer some advice about holding fretted notes and letting them ring whilst playing other notes, sometimes creating a nice harmony, sometimes being discordant? I hear it sometimes in banjo playing, good banjo players who get it harmonically correct. How to go about cleaning this area of playing up as well?
Thanks - and hope everyone’s doing ok, under the circumstances.
