Hi all. I’m only three weeks into shamisen (but addicted in bad way). One of the things I sometimes have trouble doing is hitting the third string (and somethings others, but mainly the third string) consistently.
Sometimes I miss it completely and just hit the dou, below the third string. Other times I come straight down on the さんの糸but am not sliding off, so it doesn’t sound.
I exaggerated it in this video to explain what i’m talking about: https://youtu.be/YPwJ6td6SHg
Any mental things I can think of to help, or drills, to help?
