Check out my web-site to get an idea~ www.banjoman.info Been playing by ear since I was 12. Utilizing 4,5,6, and 8-string banjos in a number of different tunings and styles. Made a livin' at it since 1985. Have received seven grants to play the banjo, done work for PBS, and a video for Mel Bay.Toured in USA, Canada, England. This is not a passing fad for me!
