    5-String

    I play the 5-string banjo. I picked it up the summer after my senior year of high school and LOVE it!!  It's a blast to play.  I get funny looks sometimes when I mention it, but hey--It's freakin awesome to play. SO much fun.

    I hate most country music, but I love the sound of the banjo. I love when artists use the banjo in non-country songs, like when Scatman John's "Night Train".
