Okay, so I am watching an episode of "Shabat Night Live" from Aviv Moon studios out of North Carolina,  part of a series called "A Rood Awakening", and the host-- Michael Rood--  introduces a composer-musician Brad Bailey for a music spot near the end of the program.

 

Now I know what a "Banjo Guitar" is, my hubby plays guitar and told me about this instrument and that it is something he would like to acquire  --- but ---   the musician I mentioned was using something I have never heard my hubby speak of :  a "Bass-Banjo-Guitar" !!   This has got to be one of the coolest things I have ever heard played upon recently, and I am wondering if there are any other musicians and/or musical groups that use this neat stringed instrument !???

 

I kept thinking there was a bass player somewhere behind him, then they showed the close up of the strings, and the upper 3 were black, thick and very rubbery looking, and the bottom 4 (I think it was 4) were steel strings.  It essentially sounded like Brad Bailey was accompanying himself.

 

Does anyone know of anyone else who uses this instrument in their songs?????  I'd like to hear more compositions using this Bass-Banjo-Guitar.

I looked the guy up on YouTube and I think he customized his own banjo. So it is a one of a kind instrument.

Did you get to hear him play?  That is one of the most unusual adaptations to an instrument I've ever heard or seen, if indeed this is a one-of-a-kind.  If this is new, he must also have figured out a particular way to play it for the effects he gets from it.   :o   :)   I really like when people can figure out how to be original.
