are the strings on a banjo the same thickness of those on a guitar?

and just to keep this on topic, i'm guessing banjo theory is the same as well?

how did you confuse banjo and bass guitar??

anywho - what was previously stated is correct Music theory is Music theory regardless of your instrument, scales will be scales, key's will be key's and so forth, learn the basics of Music and then you will be able to learn the techniques

well, banjo and bass both start with b, so it would be easy to confuse them.

I have no idea about the guage of banjo strings, a friend of the family is teaching me the basics.

I dunno how i confused bass with banjo lol, both have mainly 4 strings, one has the top 4 other has the bottom 4, brain freeze I guess.

And again the theory is the same but the banjo tuning is different(open chord) so scales and chords are fretted different im still just learning the thing.

But my original point was the bass technique, its the only difference.

well, i went to a guitar shop once and picked up a banjo. i started tapping eruption on it and i was like, whoa, i'm playing eruption on a banjo.

needless to say, it was interesting.
