Speaking as a banjo player - I resemble that remark!

:wink:

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.

Today, by the way, is the birthday of Samual Swaim Stewart... born in 1855.

My dirty little secret is that I started off on banjo. It just did not have enough strangs on it.

:lol: I'm learning 'Foggy Mountain Breakdown' on guitar. A much more pleasant tune when coming from a D-55 :wink: .

Actually, I'd have loved to have learned to play the banjo :). Just always figured I needed to master the guitar first. I'm not quite there yet :lol:

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!
