2009 was going to be the year I really learned how to play banjo (clawhammer style). A few years ago, I saved up and bought this fine instrument, hand made by renowned North Georgia luther Jerry King.

It didn't happen, so I'll try to make 2010 be the year. I've got a new daughter coming in six weeks or so, and I'm sure there are lots of clawhammer lullabies to learn.

Happy New Year!

Play it again, ewagoner!!!

I hope you find the time to learn playing this fine instrument. Even if I like music so much, I know I don't have the natural skill or patience to learn how to play anything... :(

That's a killer banjo-- about as Appalacian as it gets.

Learning to play on a quality instrument is key. Good luck. I want to learn banjo as well.

@flainez I disagree. If I can play a guitar ANYBODY can. I'm am not known for my coordination or patience. And I'm not known as the greatest guitar player in the world either, but I can play it. And so can you. Give it a whirl. It's a new year.

I said I would learn too. So far I've got a couple of chords down and a song or two. 2010 will be a year to get serious about it. One day we both will learn and then we can open the first dueling banjo bar and tomfoolery house
