".....Ross, Just a quick note to say thanks for the outstanding, superlative service you provided. I called six days ago about a beginner banjo package…you answered all of my questions in terms I, as a beginner, could understand. When I told you I needed the banjo soonest, you called the factory direct and made sure not only that I got it by the date I needed it (I got it today, five days early!), but you got an upgrade for me at the same price! This kind of service is extraordinary, and extraordinarily rare. I’m just starting out, but you can count on me coming back to banjoteacher.com"

"Bluegrass Banjo" style better defined
Bluegrass Banjo is played with three fingers, your thumb, index and middle fingers and is most often called Earl Scruggs Style or three finger bluegrass style. If it's the sound of Earl Scruggs playing Foggy Mountain Breakdown from the movie Bonnie and Clyde or Duelin' Banjos from the movie Deliverance, then the bluegrass banjos category at BanjoTeacher.com is the right place.

If it's clawhammer, folk, frailing, old time styles you are after then check out selection of Open-Back Banjos. Our 4-string banjos are NORMALLY for Dixieland, Jazz or Old Time Swing or the 4-string Irish Tenor for Irish Celtic Music. We carry six-string banjos too for a variety of musical styles.

"...Ross, Thanks for your advice in helping me to pick out the best banjo to suit my needs as a new banjo enthusiast. Your advice helped me focus in on the style I prefer and the differences I should look for in the banjos. Dave Brueggeman"
