Played stringed instruments for almost 30 years. Guitar, ukulele and a bit of mandolin, fiddle and banjo. I have a deep love for pre-WW2 music--especially early country stringband and rural blues. Want to play in a jug band again and hope to find some folks to jam with. I played 5-string banjo for a few years about a decade ago and moved away from it but I'm wanting to return. UPDATE: Have acquired a nice old tenor banjo and am going with the 4 stringers.
