However, Steve Martin plays banjo. And He makes it look normal and GASP almost cool.
Basically, country music sounds exactly the same. They use the same 5 chords and every artist sings about the same thing. I lost my job, because my two-timin' strumpet of a wife/girlfriend (who also happens to work at a Honky Tonk bar) cheated on me and I was too drunk to remember to go to work.
I even got into an argument with my friend BMilll about this. If country music didn't have to include banjos, it might be a lot better. It might have a chance if singers sang about things other than getting drunk and tractors, too.
