Open Question: How do you pick a banjo d chord when you have it tuned to an open G.?
I am new to banjo and I'm using YouTube to help me learn I got Cripple Creek down but now I'm trying to learn to play other songs but I have ran into a little problem when I play GNC on the banjo I can do a roll easily I get a forward backwards role. But when I try to switch to the D chord from G I can't do the forward backwards roll because G doesn't fit in d. So is there a certain kind of roles you use with chords like this in open G. Basically I'm trying to figure out how to pick Indy I can use all kinds of things of teeth but the only thing I can think of is just using three strings and not using the high G please helpQuestions about hybrid banjos?
So I want to play banjo but I already know a little about guitar and so I found out about hybrid banjos aka 6 string banjos. So I have some questions about them. 1. If tuned to a guitar can they be used to play guitar music and tabs found online. 2. If one is not using them for gigging just playing at home are they a good choice as opposed to a 4 or 5 string banjo? 3. Can them be used for gigging/ in a band? Any mainstream/underground/local artists in your area use them in a band? Or are 4 or 5 string banjos a better choice. 4. How much does a good beginner 6 string banjo cost. Keep in mind I am musician so I understand the importance of a quality instrument. So don't tell me to buy a $50 k-mart one. 5.So basically it is a guitar that sounds and looks like a banjo right? So it can be played just like a guitar? Maybe using alternate tuning it could sound and play nothing like a guitar. But for the most part it is played like a guitar right? If am wrong please explain.Whats a good begginner song/songs for a fiddle, banjo, and guitar?
