You'd be better getting a 5 string banjo if you're wanting to play bluegrass - 4 string (or tenor) banjo is more commonly associated with traditional jazz (when tuned cgda) or irish/scottish music (when tuned gdae). Blues banjo is something I'm not familiar with, but shouldn't be too hard on a 4 string.

Of course, if you can play the guitar already, then you could just get a 6 string banjo and get the banjo sound and vibe without the learning curve.

Regards
