    Hairy Inebriate, or rather James Walters (tehe) - I was dying to learn the tenor banjo because the tuning's the same as the viola AND the banjo is one of the most fantastic instruments in the world ever (and possibly the universe) along with the might viola *bias*. Teach meh!

    Yeah the tuning is the reason I took up the tenor banjo rather than the 5 string, already played the mandolin and couldn't be bothered to learn a new tuning. Most of the instruments I own have 4 (or 8) strings because of this reason lol.

    I've never played anything that requires plucking, I always end up making a massive fail of it, but I'd love to be able to. Practice makes perfect and all that. How did you get into the mandolin?

    Dunno really just fancied an instrument and decided to buy a mandolin.

    Plucking doesnt take too long at all to get the hang of and you can always use a pick with a banjo which makes it much easier.

    I wouldn't dare borrow someone else's instrument, I'd feel too bad if I managed to break it or scratch it or something. It'd be one of those things, I'd try my best to be so careful but no...heh
