Frailing  frail·ing adjective \ˈfrāl iŋ\  Change text size for readability...  Print This Page

00:35Frailing is a style of banjo playing that involves striking down on the string with the back of the index or middle fingernail, catching the fifth string with the thumb, then releasing it. The basic rhythm is often described as a bump ditty sound. There are many variations to this but the basic "Bump-Ditty" rhythm is produced by a downstroke with no thumb-produced offbeat followed by another down stroke with a thumbed offbeat. Rapping, Knocking and Framming are other terms used to describe this style of playing.
