Well, I'd love to say "VIOLAAAAAAAAAAAA" but I don't blame you for wanting to learn to play the banjo......

Love that sound.

Hey Manny, so it took so long to respond, I missed this some how.  I used to play drums back in my younger days and sure I could pick it back up if I wanted. I also play guitar,bass guitar,harmonica, a little piano and mandolin some.

I really like the way the viola sounds .  I would have never thought of it as a folk instrument.

I have a jug here Barry but you'll have to help me empty it first.  I'm sure by that time anything will sound great.
