Banjos are a traditional instrument with a long history. They come in several different types, including the 4-string banjo, the 5-string banjo and the 6-string banjo. There are also more unusual variations, for example, the 12-string banjo.

The most popular banjo setup is the 5-string. The majority of the teachers who offer banjo lessons provide lessons on the 5-string banjo.
