Yes, I play the viol (viola da gamba). My first job was teaching classical guitar; my most recent undertaking is teaching the ukulele.

I've heard of dueling banjos, a contest of sort, yes? But a uke and a banjo? Possibly. Sort of seems like apples vs. oranges.
But what do I know?

My pupil is very keen; he comes with three ukes, one of which is a banjo-ukulele.

They must have made friends, after a bout or two of duelling . . . Tancredi & Clorinda come to mind . . . accompanied by ukuleles and banjos.
