Finally caved to my "boss" at the music school and have started learning to play the 5 string banjo. In all my years of playing fingerstyle guitar I never used finger picks but all of the books I've looked at for the banjo say to use them. So far I've been playing without them and it's been going good. I don't have a banjo but I live really close to the school/music store where I teach guitar and the boss is letting me come in and use a banjo off the wall and a book off the shelf, and a teaching room whenever I can fit it in and there is a room open. Any thoughts?
Whoever called it "rush hour" should not be allowed to name anything else.
