How to play a C+ chord on banjo?
How do I play a C+ chord on the banjo? In standard tuning -> gDGBD Could you tell me exactly where to put my fingers on each of the strings and on what fret? Or even give me a link to a diagram of it as I can't find one anywhere.Tuning my banjo to the key of C?
I am planning on learning a song on the banjo and performing with it, and the song is in the key of C. I've trying looking different keys to tune to, but all that comes up for the key of C is double C. My banjo is currently tuned to G. Should I use my capo, or tune my strings? HELP!Anybody know how to tune a banjo?
I have a 5 string Goodtime Deering banjo that I got recently and it's way out of tune. Trouble is, I don't know what notes the strings are supposed to be. (Sorry if I used the wrong terminology I'm a noob) Any help would be deeply appreciated.Guitar tuning question?
I'm an accomplished player, but for the life of me it still makes no concrete sense as to why the B string is tuned a half-step down from the rest of the strings. it just seems like a weird way to design the instrument. I know that it is 24 (23 and plus root note) steps through the strings, and the way to have 24/5 (5 strings above the bottom string) is e+5 =a+5=d+5=g+4=b+5=e'' so it's e+24=e'' but it just seems like a weird design I guess it's also "square" that way enabling barre-ing chords I guess if it weren't that way it'd be more like a banjo any input? any suggested reading on the subject and the history and evolution.
