Work your right-hand technique like Jack LaLane.
Or...
Get a tenor and play vaudeville and ragtime to your heart's content.

The notion of getting a banjo has gone... played one today hideous noise I made not the instrument for the likes of me...

What's the difference between a banjo and an onion?

No one cries when a banjo is chopped up.


Apart from maybe me, banjo's pretty cool. And steve Martin.

I liked the banjo playing on Low's C'mon and thought it might add a bit of sonic diversity to my recordings... but not it would seem if I'm playing it.

There's a bit of a trend these days with a number of world commercials doing their generic indie-pop laced with banjo that have been making me want to get one myself for a few years now, especially since so many mid-low-tier models are made here.

In the meantime, learning how to do right hand banjo rolls with proper accented "thumb" on a keyboard has been fun, to say the least.
