Just kidding, you're great.

EDIT: Okay, that wasn't helpful. You should plug into an amp, get some overdrive.

And a whammy. Banjos are killer with Whammys. Or they would be. If they existed.
A good public beheading will teach them. Not with a guillotine, that's too good for the bastards. I say an axe. Or a spoon...Or a bendy straw.

That's right. I sigged myself. Because I'm a philosopher.

Actually my guitar will model a Gibson Mastertone Banjo...Using trem bar with it is not as cool as it would seem, although running it through my POD can get pretty cool. ha ha

Get on to learing "dueling banjos" and datin' yer sister

My son picks up a banjo and plays it most every time we go into a guitar shop. People stare. He laughs. Have fun!

I've played a banjo before, and if you can fingerpick well the transition between the two doesn't seem to be that big of a deal. Just a matter of getting used to the string intervals.

I say go for it. The more instruments you can play, the better.
And I mean that in the best possible way.
