Banjos!

I'm thinking of taking up the banjo. Could anyone give me information on what brand is good to start off with...good techniques to start practicing...and other learning resources?

Well, I suppose you could look at the other banjo threads in this forum, like "how does a banjo work" which provides some banjo links, I believe. Or just look at any of the other banjo threads. No personal advice from myself, sorry.

I've been TRYING to learn banjo. From what I've read a Deering Goodtime banjo is the best to start with. The Murphy Method DVD's really helped me in learning.

Maybe slightly off topic, but I thought Travis Tritt missed a golden opportunity when he did "Take it Easy" and did not include a fast ripping banjo interlude... THAT would have been awesome.

I would also recommend checking out The How And Tao Of Old-Time Banjo and videos on YouTube by user Dobro33H. These are great resources for frailing or clawhammer banjo.
