Who's your favorite banjo player?
well i'd have to say john hartford. because he made his own language. don stover, reed martin, and walt koken too. and snuffy jenkins and earl and don reno of course, ralph stanely. but john really had his own thing going on. which is tough because the banjo world already is a subset of the overall music world, and then to develop a subset to a subset, can be sort of.....you have to do it for it's own reward.
