Banjo

Banjos are stringed instruments that produce a twangy sound via a resonating head, which is very much like a drum skin, stretched over the body. The banjo is incredibly popular due to its unique sound, and how versatile they are throughout a wide variety of music. They are very popular in folk and country genes, but are now becoming more popular in pop music.

An open back banjo is a quieter gentle banjo, this is due to the players clothing absorbing some of the sound. A closed back banjo is when a resonator is fitted, it pushes the sound forward making it much more powerful.

Some types of popular music that are played on the 5-string banjo are as follows:- Bluegrass, Frailing, Clawhammer, Old time, 5-string Folk Style, Classical etc.
