Welcome to the Hangout. I also have a Deering Maple Blossom and love it. I bought it second hand about 2 years ago. I say second hand and not used because nobody had played it hardly at all.
As far your question about learning I would make the suggestion that you decide what style(s) you want to play and then read the Hangout. There are a number of lesson plans available and they are discussed regularly. The "search" function is very useful also. Enjoy your Maple Blossom.

Hey Sid, welcome. If you really want to learn some traditional banjo styles, you should find plenty of advice on the hangout. But I'd also encourage you to draw on your background in finger-style guitar and open tunings, experiment, and see what you can come up with (and of course post MP3 audio of it on the BHO!)
