I have an old mandolin banjo that was passed down to me from my mother. It doesn't get used anymore and just sits in the case in my house.
Ever since I received this instrument, I have been fascinated by it and wanted to learn how to play it. I saw a man playing one at a state fair contest one time, and loved the sound of it.
I know how to play the piano, but have never played a string instrument like this. Most people really enjoy the sound of a banjo or mandolin, especially the fast songs that you hear them play.
One of these days I need to dust off that case and find someone who can give me some lessons.
