So, I have to ask
Is there a difference in the way you play a tenor and a plectrum banjo? I know the neck is longer by a couple of frets on a plectrum. Other than that, what actually is the difference between the two? I didn't bother to Google this, but is the tuning the same or different? I know, or believe Bob played his plectrum tuned like the first four strings of a guitar, like Nick played the tenor guitar. So is it the way you strum it? Or is a tenor a higher pitched instrument, as the word tenor seems to suggest? Curious minds want to know!
