I think that you already know him, but, do you know Bela Fleck?

yeah I know him, not my taste tho. he plays bluegrass and jazz. I never heard from him anything traditional you know, and that´s what I really enjoy on Banjo, not the skills from the players.
anyway he is a awesome musician, considered one of the best in his style.

I love Bela Fleck and the Flecktones. Flatt and Scruggs, too.

/we need a lesson on Foggy Mountain Breakdown for guitar.

Love the banjo!! Not much else to say really. Can't listen to anything with one and not want to jump up and dance a jig... same goes for the fiddle too really smile.gif

Here are some great banjo players I thought you may enjoy...




(probably one of the best banjo players ever imho)

And the not so traditional but I LOVE!!!!



I couldn't find a good video but check out Flogging Molly. Bob Schmidt is a very talented banjo player and has some amazing riffs and solos in many or their songs. I saw them live this October and they were amazing. Met Bob after and he is a great guy!!

I love banjo. Sometimes I try to simulate it on the guitar. Not always easy but works in some country licks.
