    Cool... I know what the banjo is and I'm first to reply so does that mean I win a prize?!?! hehehe actually my boyfriend has mucked around on a banjo before. Pretty cool instrument. I play a bunch of instruments myself - but no string instruments... I just can't get the hang of them. Although I did just pick up a bass guitar and got that pretty easily. Problem is I have little hands, just big enough to play a sax. *sob*

    Nice to meet you!!

    Nice to meet you. Yes, I do know what a banjo is! I play music too (anything with a keyboard). I have never been able to get the hang of string insturments though, my hands are just used to playing an insturment with a keyboard and don't seem to want to work for anything else. :)

    Welcome to TPF! :raises hand: I know what a banjo is, too! :) A very unique sound and beautiful instrument. We have a lot of guitarists and a couple of violinists around here, too, but you might be our only banjoist.

    Thanks, Jeff - great interview! :thumbup:
