FINGER PICKING WAS ORIGINATED IN AFRICA BACK IN THE DAYS WHEN
THE BANJO WAS FIRST INVENTED. AT THAT TIME THE ONLY BANJO THAT
EXISTED WAS THE FOUR-STRING BANJO. THE PERSON PLAYING WOULD PICK
THE TWO STRINGS NEAREST HIM WITH HIS THUMB IN AN ALTERNATING
FASHION. ON THE OTHER TWO STRINGS, HE WOULD PICK THE MELODY OF
THE PARTICULAR SONG THAT HE WAS PLAYING.
