I do find playing musicians friend banjo very interesting. I have seen one, yet never played one at all, but now I am curious and wish to try one.
I think I've seen someone in the movie who actually have this instrument and he was playing with it. The sound doesn't the same as the guitar but this one here is quite unique and interesting. I'm sure chords and fingering might be the same since I can see they have the same strings count as acoustic guitar.
