This one is from yours truly. I sat down and recorded one part completely off-the-cuff. After the take, I switched to a different instrument and went for a second, contrasting part. One banjitar is a closed-back model in standard tuning, the other is an open-back model in Nashville tuning. Enjoy!

Here is a nice demo of a Vega banjitar, played plectrum-style. One of the nice things about the 6-string banjo is that it is very adaptable. You can play it fingerstyle for folk music, but you an also strum it like a tenor banjo. The Vega shown here is an open-back model, which is a little bit softer in tone than one with a resonator on the back.
I did a couple of instruction videos lately. Here they are. Enjoy!
A cover of the classic “Across the Great Divide” by Kate Wolf. The banjitar is in Nashville tuning with a capo on the 4th fret. Enjoy!
This is a useful lesson from Brad Davis. I love the sound of his Deering banjitar! Maybe someday Deering will want to sponsor me or want me...
