Subject: RE: Why are guitars SEXY and banjos, not?
Well...somehow I missed this earlier discussion, on the annual trip back to the UK I think. Been playin' 5 string banjo most of my life. Met lots of women as a musician. It ain't the instrument you play, it's the person who plays and the way they play. Too many people think one can only play bluegrass or clawhammer on a banjo. Pick it and stroke it on a song like "The Lakes of Pontchartrain". Sexy as any instrument on earth!
