Thread Name: Why are guitars SEXY and banjos, not?
Subject: RE: Why are guitars SEXY and banjos, not?
PICTURE THIS ~~ It is a warm late spring evening, there is a full moon and you decide to visit your girl friend. You go over to her house, ~ stand by the white picket fence. ~ toss a pebbel on her upstairs window. She opens the window and ...... you pull out your 5 string banjo and launch into "Foggy Mt. Breakdown". (now that would certainly win her heart).

Of course if you are in to OLD TIMEY you might want to try something like "Shoot the Turkey Buzzard". A tenor banjo player may play something like "Waiting For The Sunrise".

Sailor Dan ~~ when you are my age the guitar thing is about as good as it gets. I should probably confess that I also play 5 string and tenor banjo's. There are some really beautiful tunes that can be played on the banjo if you don't try to tame them by beating them to death.
