Got Banjo?

  1. hey folks.

    I just picked up the banjo a few monthes ago, ridiculous amounts of fun. I decided to get an instructor this time around. I'm starting to wish i had done the same for bass.

    Any other banjo folk 'round here?

    Banjo got me into playing bass. When my grandfather died, we inherited a five-string banjo, of which I promptly broke a string. I started playing basslines on it, and figured hey, might as well try bass. Unfortunately, the banjo fell apart and is no more. Takes a heck of a lot of right hand technique to play it well.
