    So I have somewhat unusual musical tastes for someone my age I've been told(28). Most of my life playing out has been spent playing in country/blues bands. Recently I met a guy who wants to start a Dixieland jazz combo, horns and all! He told me a guitar player would be great but a tenor banjo player who played guitar would be ideal. So thanks to that i ordered one on Ebay! It's on it's way should be here Friday. Here's the pic in the ad. $_12.jpeg.jpg

    Good luck!....I'm all for widening musical horizons. Just be aware playing a BANJO may get you banned from TDPRI.......sorry. ;)

    Lol between you me and a fence post I've played 5 string for years. I traded it for a pedal steel and I don't miss it at all. I wanted a tenor banjo because it's a sound I'm not sick of hearing lol

    good on ya and best of luck. New adventures are wonderful, and even more so when they involve learning new stuff.

    It's possible that someone could mention to be wary of new ventures that involve new shoes or new banjos, but it looks like you're getting one that's used, so you've got that going for you...

    O yes lol. I don't buy new banjos. Last banjo I had was a 5 string that I played for years(a Gold Star)and it was used too

    So its here and it sounds incredible!(for a banjo lol). I'm going to play with that Dixieland group next Friday. Funny enough, Mrs. Fireball has played it more than I have today 20190117_211306.jpg
