Not sure if you can access the playlist from outside of the forum, as it is 'unlisted' - but if you try these, one might work.

I must warn you, I'm not very good.
well...its just I'm not very good at it and its probably not a very good instrument (cost me £5) Plus its more for playing blues and country, and getting clean notes, especially playing chromatically, is hard. Recorder is just easier.
A slightly busy week ahead for me this week, I'm hosting 'Seasons of the Ukulele', likely my last one, as I have so many other things I want to try out yet, & I seem not to have enough time these days - how on earth did I manage to fit in a full week of working before I retired!
Interesting, I thought most banjos came with mylar heads these days.
Most banjos do have either mylar or plastic heads these days. I myself often play 1800s style reproduction banjos in historic settings, so those three banjos of mine represent banjos as they were made at that time- with real skin heads, wooden tuning pegs, and no frets. The only concession I make is using Nylgut strings... which function and sound very close to gut strings but are not so badly effected by humidity. I've tried having both a real calf head and gut strings- there are many situations where this combo can make it impossible to play the banjo, so most banjo 're-enactors' do use nylon strings for outdoor venues or camping. It's easier to dry out your head than your strings!
Well, in Summer the humidity causes my calf and goat skin banjo heads to get saggy, which makes them really hard to play.
There's always a challenge with the weather in some way with instruments it seems!
Don't get that hassle with my other instruments, so they will likely get more play time in the coming months. ;)
