Just curious if anyone out there has even joined in during a jam with a zydeco band. havn't been able to find much information on how the banjo would fit into the theme... more of a dixieland swing style.. just curious if the ole 5 would mesh well.. anyone have any reccommendations to listen to?

thanks,
Jeremy

dixieland and zydeco use plectrum banjos and are played in a tenor style with a pick

pickin' aint easy.......or cheap! so hire me for all your art related needs!

True, but it would be fun to try on a 5-string, though!

hey gibson, I was aware of that fact :-)... I should have phrased my question differently... i was more curious if there was anyone out there that did play with a 5 string? and what it might sound like..
