Around the time of his albums "Taj Mahal" "The Natch'al Blues" and "Giant Step / De Ole Folks at Home" Taj played a National Duolian resonator guitar: "I was playing a National Duolian, and I played banjo on “Farther on Down the Road.” When I was in college, a guy showed me around on the instrument. Eventually, I borrowed a banjo, locked myself in my house trailer for a weekend with a bottle of Jack Daniels, and went at it [laughs]. When I opened the door and came up for air, I could play!"
