This is my entry into the world of Ruben variants. I play a Prust tackhead banjo in a "pinching" style, where everything is played off an off-beat bass drone on the 4th string, and the 5th is only used occasionally for colour. The string buzz is from a narrow piece of paper woven between the strings at the bridge, and the accompanying rhythm is played with a kazoo, a ballpoint pen and a fanta bottle. :)
