Reply to a student reporting on learning timing on banjo and other common hurdles
Thanks for the positive feedback. timing problems can often be solved by learning to count out or tap out the beats or notes in each measure, (without playing).
Listen to the CD too and try to hear what you are trying to do, or count it without whacking away at it incorrectly over and over. That can build negative muscle memory and hard habits to break. Take your time, study the tab, memorize and reinforce good timing and good technique.
