Well, the new Gretsch banjo is in, and it’s a heavy sucker.  Looks to be really well made for a Chinese import and to my ear it sounds pretty good.  I’ve already started learning how to play some of dueling banjo on it.
It does take a totally different play style compared to the guitar, but I really like how easy the reading of the tabs is to learn the song(s).  That is much friendlier than the guitar.
Tanya has played with it some and shown some interest in it, especially when she saw that she really didn’t have to “learn” music to read the sheets as the tabs are pretty self explanatory.  She may start trying to learn the banjo also, which would be great.
