Chris in Portland Six string banjo , help (40) RE: Six string banjo , help 17 Jan 07

Frank or others, very interesting - do you know of any current 6-string banjo players who play with finger-picks. Old Crow was on New Year's Eve with PHC and I think the fellow as using a regular pick. I finger pick guitar and have wondered if doing that with a 6-string banjo would be good for jams or a small group, since there are usually more guitars than needed.
If finger picking would be recommended, would the Deering be the best bet?
Thanks, Chris in Portland
p.s Frank, I used to hear Clancy playing with Bob Scobey in Chicago in the late 50's - he played in a club down Rush Street from the ("new") Gate of Horn - both places had a special section for minors -great music at both!!
