The making of an "oilcan banjo"


SF Mom of One said...

Banjo, do you actually play a banjo? and if so, is it made from an oilcan?

no I don't but I have always enjoyed banjo music, going so far as visiting the fabulous banjo museum in Guthrie, OK. The banjo is a fabulous musical instrument whose origins can be traced back to Africa where the folks made them out of gourds. During slave days here in the New World the banjo took root and became what it is today.

Nice that he had some extra banjo parts laying around to jam into the oilcan old school style.
