PostSubject: Banjo's??????????   Thu Mar 10, 2011 2:22 am

Well my girlfriend plays the guitar a little and I've always wanted to learn how to play a Banjo (Yes I'm kinda a redneck rabbit ) Anywho, is it harder or about the same as playing a guitar and I want to play the "dueling Banjo" song with my girlfriend she plays the Guitar and I'll play the Banjo. If you don't know what the dueling Banjo is, its part of the Movie "Deliverance" Check it out:

I say give it a shot dude, I wouldn't imagine it being to hard or harder. If you know basic guitar a transition to banjo would be easier then straight into banjo.

I'd imagine so for you, you started a music forum. hahaha. Smile

I just want it so me and my girlfriend can bond some more and I'd like to participate a little more in her hobbies.

And I've always thought that Banjo's just sound bad ass!

Yeah banjos are a total badass instrument when played properly haha, yeah music is definitely my life haha. Seeing I spend 3-4 hours a day playing guitar, 2 Hours on music forums. And I'm constantly reading about music, my ipod or itunes basically run 24/7. Im setting up a studio in my bedroom at the moment, spent $1500 so far. somewhere in there I have to fit school in haha.

I went and looked at some Banjo's and there slightly out of my price range at the moment. Guitar Center is a little pricey.

I got my Banjo for £135. I have only just started learning. I have a 4 string and it's rather annoying as most videos on youtube are 5 string!

I have played guitar for 15 years and actually I am finding the Banjo quite hard. It is a fantastic instrument though.
