Here is a reproduction of a colonial era banjo made with a gourd for a body. As you can see, this has influences of a style of instrument popular in Africa over the centuries. At the same time, you can see how this instrument below does have characteristics of the modern banjo. Al Jolson, although he didn’t play the banjo himself, helped popularize one of the most well known banjo songs ever – Oh Susanna. To me, this song represents, in large part, why the banjo is thought to come from the southern . as the lyrics reflect this, and the song is maybe the best known banjo tune of all time. As you can see above, Al Jolson used blackface makeup, which he often did.

The Jolson Story is a 1946 American Technicolor musical biography film which purports to tell the life story of singer Al Jolson.
On the other hand, open-back banjos have their upsides as well. You can use an open-back model to play in clawhammer style, which is also called frailing. This is a good choice if you want a gentler tune. Some banjos come with a removable resonator. Since many beginners aren’t sure of their style, this is a good choice for a novice. Removing the resonator is a simple process, as all you need to do is to loosen some screws. Even though there are various cheap banjos on the market that perfectly suitable for beginners, ask yourself how much are you willing to sacrifice in terms of quality? Not all expensive banjos are amazing. But the more you pay, the better the chances that the banjo will serve intermediate players too. Maybe even be loud and clear enough to use in live gigs.
