If I break a string is there a better brand I should look for to replae it with? Do you show how on a video? Any words of encouragement for a beginner? Do you knnnnow any Johnny Horton songs-he used a banjoj in many of his songs?
there are videos of how to do it. the gauge is more important than the brand. a banjo has to be set up with a particular gauge of string in mind. if you change gauges, say go from medium to lights, the action my change unfavorably. good to get your instrument set up, and then stick with that gauge.
Danny, do play house shows with audiences of 40-50? If so, who do I contact re: booking? - DougDanny Barnes responded on 02/11/2014 Next question
At what age did you begin to play the banjo? With a lot of practice, patience I hope to learn to play a song people will recognize- with a miracle I hope to be able to play with someone as good as you and be proud of what I have accomplished-I have Parkinson's but this is a dream I hope will help me fight it with.Danny Barnes responded on 02/14/2014
