nothing wrong with Czech banjos. Prucha comes to mind. Pete Werninck plays Prucha, 'nuff said
you learnt to play bluegrass from tab? bloody hell .. more patience than me, old son!
I did once play ''waltzing matilda'' with a pub band in Stavanger on a run ashore, that was a laugh... and I worked out Duelling Banjos as a duet for banjo and balalaika for an open-mike night in O'Neills in Atyrau, Kazakhstan, that was easier than it sounds
