Frank in the swamps Guitar-jo anyone? (15) RE: Guitar-jo anyone? 18 Aug 98

I heard a recording once on the radio of someone playing a Steven Foster tune on a six string, nylon strung banjo. It was really quite nice, a warbly kind of sound, delicate but with full polyphony. I also have a cd from rounder records (cd 0321) titled Minstrel Banjo Style. It features several players on a variety of banjos. Fascinatin' stuff.

I think the choice of neck would be more dependant on the style of music you want to play. guitar necks would be great for early jazz, but if it comes to bluegrass, all those five string players can't be wrong can they?
