The 4-string banjo is any one of a number of long-necked lute like stringed instruments with a hollow resonator body and four strings. The instrument was particularly popular in the United States in the early 20th century, and extensively used in jazz. It was also available as a hybrid banjo-ukulele.
A four-string banjo has a number of different tunings. Popular ones include CGDA, DGCE, DGCD, CGBD while the Irish tuning is G D A E. It is primarily a rhythmic instrument, and virtuosity is sometimes considered to be based on breaking repetitive patterns and surprising the listener with unexpected and inventive rhythmic figures, while keeping the rhythm steady.
The tenor banjo is a relative newcomer to the world of Irish trad music being on the scene one hundred years about 100 years.
Indeed, up until as recently as the 1960s they barely featured at all, however a tenor banjo is almost a must have of any good Irish folk/trad band these days.
