    I've played a lot of guitar. I've played a little Banjo... the main differences are you have 5 strings instead of 6. The tuning is a little different, but even if you turned to a guitar type tuning, you can't strum it. In order to get the cool Banjo sound you need to do a lot of picking and counter-picking.

    It's tougher to play, because you can't strum. It's a lot of fun though because it makes such neat music once you actually get rolling. (Try the dueling banjo's song to start, it's very cool.)

    If you only strum it, no. If you play the banjo like it should be played, you will need to learn a lot and practice more.

    Best to find a teacher who plays well in the style that you want to play.

    It's about the same, just a little different. I play a banjo made of chocolate.

    It's very similiar, the chords are often very alike. I've played one a few times (I am a guitarist). I think you would need lessons to excel, it's not exactly the same.
