nice..I have been telling my wife if I ever get the guitar figured out I really want to get a banjo. There use to be a guy down on the river that was the ferry operator and he would pick his banjo late at night while we fished just down the river.. They were some truly epic nights. had the fog rolling down the river the water churning and with the banjo...yep there come the chill bumps.
That was great. I have a variax line 6 quitar that has a banjo effect but have never mastered the picking pattern to makes it sound correct. Always fancied a mando too but the neck is a little tight for my fingers.
Great job with that banjar! I love the sound of a banjo! Here is mine: It's a Rettenberg & Lange Orpheum No. 1 tenor banjo circa 1915 out of New York. Oh, yeah, and that's my Chicago-made Harmony acoustic.
G C and D are nice with Mando. There's other 2 finger chords that are good too which I'm learning. 3 / 4 finger chords gets a bit crowded so I'm trying to simplify them a bit. It tends to resist barring because the frets spaces are skinny and it's similar to playing a 12 string with the doubled up strings. Proving very interesting to play.
