My family calls me "banjoholic."

I can relate to that. Recently, when a new banjo arrived at the house, my 5 year old son shouted out:
"Just what we need around here--another banjo!"
Where does he get that caustic sense of humor????

That is a very thought provoking commentary. I agree, I can't seem to bring myself to use the term, "banjoist." Banjo player or banjo picker works for me.
"...ist" seems to fit other things, but doesn't flow with a banjo. For example, when I play the banjo, some folks call me a "sadist." Or perhaps they were describing my picking as the saddest? Or both?

Ah, you as a teacher should know better than to try to make sense out of the English language, which uses so many "foreign" terms. :-)
How about fervent pickers being known as "banjistas"?
