It just means pulling each individual string when playing, rather than strumming - as you sometimes would with a guitar.
That is the correct spelling of "banjo" (a stringed instrument).

Today, the k is silent. We don't say kuh-nock or kuh-nee, but we used to. See below.Answer
Actually, this is due to historical change. English is a Germanic language, and the word knight is an old Germanic word (not borrowed from German). In the Old English, just like in German, the consonant k was pronounced together with the n. The sound disappeared from pronunciation only during 17th and 18th centuries, but as the spelling had already been set, the old pronunciation remained in the written form.
This is the case with all words beginning with "kn-" in English. Knee, knot, knight, knob etc. all were just few hundreds years ago pronounced with [kn] sound. This pronunciation still prevails in some forms of Scots.
So, indeed, when Shakespeare wrote "knight", he pronounced it more or less like [knIiht] (k-ne-ee-ht).
Despite how similar they are, here are the major differences between the mandolin and the banjo:
One of the key differences between the mandolin and the banjo is the material that makes up the body of the instrument. A mandolin has a hollow wooden body which frequently has two ‘f’ shaped holes cut into it to allow sound to get out through the front of the instrument.
Modern mandolins will, most of the time, have a plastic triangular pickguard beneath the strings to protect the wood from wearing out and getting scratches. The banjo’s body is vastly different. It is built with a ring of wood, along with a tone ring inside, a piece of plastic like a drum head on the front, and a bowl-shaped resonator on the back.
The shapes of the bodies are typically different. The banjo’s body is circular and the mandolin’s body is more like a teardrop shape, making the two instruments non-identical from each other.
An obvious difference between the mandolin and the banjo is the number of strings that they have. A lot of the banjos nowadays have either four or five strings. Generally, the mandolin has eight strings. This provides every one of the instruments a different sound from each other. It provides the banjo with the well-known twang sound but the mandolin sounds practically like a higher-pitched 12-string guitar. This is due to the reason that the strings of the mandolin are played in pairs and tuned in unison to each other.
The size is also one of the differences between the banjo and the mandolin. The standard banjo has a long neck and it is comparable in length to a guitar. However, the mandolin is a smaller instrument and has a shorter neck and a size which is similar to a tenor violin rather than a guitar. both the banjo and the mandolin have various adaptations which come in but when it comes to standard sizing, there are very different.
it was made in the south

The tenor banjo is usually configured with ether 17 frets (favored for playing Celtic tunes) or 19 frets (generally favored for gay nineties sing-along tunes, show tunes, ballads. It is tuned CGDA (in 5ths) and renders a bright ringing sound. Other tunings are possible, including guitar tuning which is often favored by guitar players who want to be ab le to switch to playing banjo as occassion might require.
The plectrum banjo has a longer neck accomodating 22 frets and tuned CGBD. Not being in 5ths means that fingering the plectrum fingerboard is very different than doing so on a tenor. There is no similarity in chord formations. However, strumming the strings of either tenor or plectrum involves the same techniques and many banjoists ultimately seem to gravitate to from tenor to plectrum.
The plectrum instrument delivers a more mellow tone than the tenor but the type of music played is basically the same. Both instruments usually have a resonator (an attached sound chamber, if you will) that aids in projecting the sound,
There are 3 types of banjos...
if you are talking about how many banjos are in the world, Then the answer would be countless of them.
Banjo Paterson was passionately nationalistic, and this made him popular among many Australians in a fledgling country searching for its own identity apart from Britain. His writings - both as a war correspondent and his fictitious short stories and entertaining ballads - had considerable influence on making Australians want to stand up for their new, young country, and speak out against the influence of old "mother England".
The banjo is believed to have originated in the Middle East and Africa and been brought to America with the slaves.
The original banjos were really drums with strings pulled tightly across them, which were plated by either plucking or drawing a bow across them. The first actual record of a banjo seems to have been made by Richard Johnson in 1620. While exploring the Gambra River in Africa, he wrote in his diary of an instrument "made of a great gourd and a neck, thereunto was fastened strings."
The invention of the banjo was inspired by African stringed instruments that were made with dried gourds. The 5-string banjo developed out of these African instruments when slaves were brought to the American colonies. The Africans reconstructed instruments based on the ones indigenous to the areas from which they had come. They were made in imitation of stringed instruments found in their homeland of Africa, like the akonting.
The banjo was popularized in the 1830s by Joel Sweeney, and was taken to Britain in the 1840s.
The banjo is a stringed instrument with a thin membrane stretched over a frame or cavity to form a resonator.
A banjo has different versions such as the 4-string version and the 5-string version. The modern Banjo is popular in jazz, fusion and also in classical contexts. A new of flow of cool and funky banjo inspired music has arrived.
