    I am also a fan of both stringing methods. They each have their own charm. Right now I am using low G, but I will swap that string out when I fancy a more traditional sound. Eventually when I have...

    Knowing which chords fit in each key will help decide which chords to color with. If you are playing a song where the C is a dominant chord, then chances are you are playing in F which has a Bb note...

    Just for fun:

    Maybe if we give the chord shapes symbolic names, we can discuss them better and we add a note we can describe that note in conjunction with the shape. For instance, we can call the...

    Yes, that's they way they are when using Low G tuning. I admit, it isn't logical for high g tuning. I was trying to simplify for easy comprehension. Apologies.

    You can put whatever strings you want on a tenor, but if you swap them around like you are thinking, it won't sound good. That C on the tenor 4th string is an octave below middle C. Tenor banjos are...

    I like Drop D for songs in D pretty much exclusively. If I want to play in G and need that low D, I usually play in open G. It's great for slide.

    On the banjo, they show the reentrant string with a small g. The string is shorter, and it's also a thin string. So it's natural for me to think of gCEA as reentrant and GCEA as linear because of the...
