    Default Mandolin and Banjo duets

    The mandolin and guitar duets thread has me thinking...lately Iíve ben going to my lessons one week with the mandolin, the next with my banjo. When I bring the banjo I play clawhammer and my teacher plays his mando. They sound really great together. But Iím not aware of this as a thing. Banjo and fiddle get played as a duet all the time, so it makes sense that clawhammer goes with mandolin. Does anyone know of any good music out there with this combo?
