The Stolen Banjo

So, one of my sisters high-tailed it to Arizona to study. She also happened to leave behind her banjo. I stole it for a day, learned a few basic chords, and recorded this cover of the Decemberists song Of Angels and Angles. (This is my first youtube video and one of my first times playing the banjo… so, please be semi-nice on the critiques. Also, the video kind of cut-out at the end. Sorry, I’m a noob).
