Hahahaha!!! Oh my GOD that's funny!!!

Poor guy, he's been a member here for awhile. Probably read a few of the "LOVE" threads we had going, like the gun thread, and the "V" thread, so he's been tainted...


Just kidding Stephen!! My dad has played a banjo (or banjer, as we call it in WV) for years. It's definitely not easy. A man needs to be very coordinated with his fingers.

Good luck to you!

Well, there is an old saying, "You know what you get when you throw a banjo in the river?".........nothing but it's a start.

Good luck and you have to get the bluegrass stare to get it right.

A banjos best sound is the one it makes when it hits the accordion in the dumpster…

What's the difference between a skunk run over on the road and a banjo player run over on the road?
You see skid marks in front of the skunk.
How many banjo players does it take to eat a opossum? Two, one to eat it & one to watch for cars
What is the definition of perfect pitch? Throwing a banjo into a toilet without hitting the seat

Too funny, unless you're a banjo picker.
