less than six

banjolele pair

i had planned to spend the day-off practising or learning a new a piece with one or all of these < guitar lute uke mandolin >  but none of them made it to my arms that workless day,  just my pillow  \ banjo and uke: the most cheerful and welcoming of string instruments \ never saw a pairing like this until market square today

i highly recommend the uke for those with a tendency to depression and melancholia | just have it sitting around may even be enough  / but with only four strings and a neck that’s not very wide, it is very easy to play / the banjo is a close second \ such a bright responsive instrument | like someone who is easy to make friends with / a hybrid of the two is the banjolele

from wikipedia | The instrument achieved its greatest popularity in the 1920s and ’30s, and combines the small scale, tuning, and playing style of a ukulele with the construction and distinctive tone of a banjo, hence the name. Its development was pushed by the need for vaudeville performers to have an instrument that played with the ease of the ukulele, but with more volume.
