The first remedy is wait for the string to stop vibrating. However, there’s no time to wait! We have to try something else.

So what should we do? Well, if placing the ring finger directly on the string causes that position to sound, all we have to do is place the ring finger in between the two strings! (It’s okay if your ring finger touches the string, just as long as it’s not directly on top) When the finger is next to the string, all you have to do is simply pull the string to the side until it slips out of your finger. Twang! You’ve just executed hajiki with a clean, snappy tone. Awesome!
