Banjo's are hollow right????

Recommended Posts

This may not be the place to ask....but

I just got a 6 string banjo. I have it intonated and tuned properly, straight neck..yada yada yada

BUT....I ain't a drummer....What do I need to do with the head?

When I play it sounds like an echo chamber. Is this right,

A guitar just didn't feel right when I jam on the porch.

I used to own a couple banjos over a total of about 4 yrs. That was basically where my introduction to fingerpicking began as well as getting familiar with steel fingerpicks. This 6-string banjo you have, is it open backed or have a wood back? The open banjos sound much more tinny. I'm assuming its a regular 6-string guitar setup, 'cept its a banjo.
