Just thought I'd share this. My son painted this on my co-workers banjo.

But one of the best ukulele players in north America is in Canada in James Hill. And if you do a google search you can find a you tube video of him playing a banjo ukulele.

I love a banjo, even tried to learn how to play one too. Between being tone def and not getting my fingers to move like that I had to put it away.

 

One of my favorite banjo players is Steve Martin, the comedian.

I've been trying to learn for several years now. My son and wife can play most stringed instruments as well as key board. I was doing quite well until the injury to my left index finger last year. It is stiff and has no reall feeling other than pain in it now. Trying to learn to use the other fingers to offset the problem. I really like the sound a banjo makes. Hopefully I will learn it and get confident.     Thanks.                                                                         Roger.

Don't give up, just find a way to make it work. Django Rhinehardt, the Belgian gypsey jazz guitarist that most professionaland amature guitarists in every genre will point to as inspiration had a badly damaged hand from a fire. I think he only used 2 fingers.

My dad's cousin only had three fingers on his right hand and he played the banjo very well. Still trying and learning.                     Thanks.                         Roger.

Have a real nice Harmony. Can't play due to arthritic hands and fingers.
