    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 Love the Banjo.

    I can play a lot of instruments in a very basic way, so learning the banjo was not a horrible task. I borrowed one from a friend to use in a year 12 theatre studies performance exam. I had it at my house for a week, and I loved it. A year went by until I bought my own, and...
