Speaking as a banjo player - I resemble that remark!
The universe of banjo music suffers the ridicule brought about by endless machine-gun-to-the-ears
bluegrass rolls... I tell those jokes myself! But here is another side... a fellow from whom I currently
draw banjo inspiration: Rob MacKillop playing classic style.
There are several different styles of banjo playing. The similarity
between playing a banjo and playing a guitar ends with the fact
that they each have frets and a few strings. When I started
into clawhammer I found a new part of my brain was getting
exercised - even after fingerpicking a guitar for 20 years!
