I've been playing the guitar for about 20 yrs, just inherited a banjo. It's kind of old, the top tuning peg is painful to turn and buzzes and the thing is as heavy as lead, but I'm digging it.

Anyone want to discuss?

Multi-stringed instrument, huh? Well, I play the guitar and it has six.

I play the mandolin and bass as well. Not too good on the mandolin. No banjo, though.

Good place to find info, I'm positive there's a few banjo players who read this forum. As for me, I actually started out on bass and moved to guitar later. I'm a fairly useless uke player, but I don't think that counts for anything.

I've heard a rumor that Santa is bringing me a Mandolin, so I will be a multi stringed instrument person in a couple of weeks.

Here's a link to a cool sight with banjo lessons.

I might have a banjo *ahem* but I wouldn't admit it.

I try to play my uke at least once a week. It's fun to take a song I've learned on guitar and try and play it on the uke.

I'm not as proficient with them as I use to be and have numerous stringed instruments hung on the halls. The few I did play on a regular routine would include mandolin, bass, violin, Polk-a lay-lee. I can still get them to to talk.

I started to play the orchestral bass in school, butI've always played guitar at home. At one point, I played a little viola but it didn't interest me enough

I've got two empty spots on my guitar tree.... want to fill em with a mandolin and an electric-acoustic. To go with my ESP electric, other Stage electric, Riviera classical and my good ole Aria 12-string.....

Hey, an old banjo is a noble thing. People look at it and they say "would you look at that tired old hound" but when they hear the happy little noises coming from it, they smile. It's really hard to play sad music on a banjo. My Dad gave me a S.S. Stewart banjo built in 1903. You can't hear the thing more than about a kitchen table away; it's as ugly as a mud fence; but it's a good for old guitar ears like mine to listen to. I can also hide behind its decrepitude. No one expects silver finger playing on a banged up old pooch like that. Keep playing banjo. It's good for your guitar mind. So's mandolin.
