Is there a question here?

You can build a banjo using a resonator if you like. Some purist may argue a banjo has to have a drum, but I'm not one of those guys. You can also play banjo with a slide. Whether you get that old Delta Blues sound out of a resonator banjo and slide, I couldn't say. But, my guess is that it's more a factor of the skill level of the player than the instrument. I recall seeing some Youtube videos of a banjo player playing slide on his banjo. It may have been Patrick Castello.

Oh, it was a video. Sorry I can't see most videos from China. I need to right click on Adobe Flash videos to know the player was loaded. The other kinds of videos just time out, so they are easier to detect.

-Rand.

Yeah Rand, its a video of a hybrid instrument played with a slide for a somewhat unusual effect.

I meant to post it in the comments section instead of starting a discussion, oops!

I know its not unheard of, I just found this video interesting and thought some others might as well. Sorry you cant see it.

Me too, Mark.
