Speaking of having too many hobbies...

I've been quite seriously debating purchasing a banjo. And hopefully, unlike all the other instruments I've purchased over the years, I'll actually try to learn how to play it.

if you want something smaller, there truly is such an instrument as the banjolele - a small, ukelele-sized banjo. i want one so that it looks as if Karl's banjo had a baby.

I've seen those and they are adorable. But, I do think that I want the full sized deal. Can Karl play? I need to find someone out here who wants to give lessons to someone who refuses to read music.

he plays - took lessons from Swallow Hill folk center in denver a few years ago - but once he learned some of the basics, has just been teaching himself. he is working on a nice little repertoire of Misfits and Ramones covers right now. you've never heard "Night of the Living Dead" until you have heard it on the banjo, sung by a bunch of poeple who can't remember the words. epic.

good luck with it - and honestly, buy one! learn it! you will love it.

That's awesome ha ha... I want to hear it. I think my goal by this time next year is to own and almost know how to play the banjo :)

Bringing some country to San Fran, eh?
