How to Play The 5-string Banjo, taught by Pete Seeger is a complete waste of money. All Pete does is play the songs and talk. He does not show you how to do a thing. You're better off going on YouTube and watching Pete "teach" you how to play "Skip To My Lou". And it's free!

Where Purchased: Rickard Banjos
Assembled a long neck banjo using a Gold Tone neck and the Rickard Tubaphone Tone Ring, rim, and parts. The sound, with only a few set up adjustments, was outstanding, better than I expected. Better than the Deering/Vega long neck that I once owned. I'm amazed at the clarity of tone coming out of this tone ring.
