Fun on the Mini-Banjo

I remember as a kid my cousins and brother and sister and I would get a huge kick out of riding my grandpa's minibike. It was just like a real motorcycle except about 1/3 scale and powered by a lawnmower engine.

I get somewhat the same thrill playing shrunk-in-the-wash style banjos. My mom bought a GoldTone Cripple Creek mini banjo for our son and needless to say I am the one getting the most use out of it. It is fairly midrange-y and has a nice little kick for a Danny Devito sized instrument.

Here's a quick clip of some Cherokee Shuffle on the little guy.

Here's the tab. If you want your full size in the same range as the mini you can capo up tho the 5th fet (C).
