    Actually do want to get a banjo, but probably tune it like a guitar or mandolin. My brain cant handle alternate tunings.

    That four stringer is a plectrum banjo, a pretty common tuning is Chicago tuning ( that's what it's in) and its the first four strings of a guitar.you can't get a healthy vintage plectrum for 179 though.

    So a guy suspects his wife is cheating on him. He sneaks home mid morning one day. He races upstairs and there’s his wife dishevelled but alone. He races to the window and sees a man pulling his pants up, running away from the house. Enraged our hero runs downstairs, Rios the fridge out of the wall, races back upstairs, throws the refrigerator, has a heart attack, dies and the fridge hits the man running away, killing him instantly.

    At the pearly gates, St. Peter says ‘next! How did you die?’

    ‘Ina fit of jealous rage, I threw a refrigerator at a man I thought was sleeping with my wife. That gave me a heart attack.’

    ‘I see my son. Wait here Next! How did you die?’

    ‘My alarm didn’t go off so I was running late for work when a refrigerator came from nowhere and hit me.’

    ‘In you go my son. Next! How did you die?’

    ‘There I was, cold, naked and frightened, hiding In a fridge ...’

    Get a five-string banjo.

    Then, lose whatever sanity you have.

    Why do bagpipers always march when they play?

    They're trying to get away from that horrible sound.

    What do you get when you play country music backward?


    You get back your wife, your dog, and your truck.
