No one likes every style of music, but everyone loves the sound of the five string banjo. The pleasantly addictive twang of the instrument is unmatched in its ability to generate smiles and happiness. And the experience is even more fun when you’re the one making those sounds.
In the hands of a capable player, the banjo is a virtuoso instrument with a broad expressive range. An uptempo breakdown, a snappy jig, a plaintive blues, a pretty gospel song - - each different in its own way, but all equally at home on the banjo.
