I just found this thread. Yeah, I.m way into BG. I've been takin banjo lessons for 5 years now. I also play mandolin and guitar, acoustic and electric. I also have a dobro, a fiddle and an upright bass, but I don't mess too much with those. I go to the Gettysburg BG fest twice a year, and Greyfox in New York. Festival season is practically upon us! Pickin & Grinnin & Sippin all night long! You betcha!
