Style. It's important. It gives your playing character. Makes it more than just a machine gun stream of sixteenth notes(which is what you need to play banjo). However, you don't need it all the time, and you don't have to rely on it. If you are playing single string, Scruggs, or melodic you can open up new possibilities with rhythmic variation. That's what this arrangement is about: unique phrasing. A lot of the fingerings suggest using the middle finger. This can help make phrases smoother. While using only thumb and index can be a good workout, using the middle finger, along with techniques like hammers, pulls, and slides, opens up more technical possibilities. This frees up your creative voice. Feel free to create your own arrangement by using the lick switcher. Make it yours, then play it like you mean it.
