For JOERG - That's a thought, Scruggs style for guitar. Don't know if it's ever been done. The problem is that you don't have the drone string on guitar. This is the banjo's fifth (or short) string, that your thumb keeps dinging away on a high note, usually sol or do of the scale, and usually off the beat. Not to say you couldn't add this to a guitar with a lot of engineering. Would that be a "seventh" string ? :-> Johnny in Oklahoma City.
