Hi everyone, I really like Bela Fleck’s “The Old Country” Does anyone know how the banjo might be tuned for this ? This is really ambitious for me, but I might like to try this one. Also, what style is this tune (in case anyone will ask me) Thanks
It's probably tuned to open G. He's playing in the key of Cm and playing mostly single string...not too many open strings that would make an alternate tuning much easier. The style sounds classical to me. Maybe some special Eastern European type of melody, but that is just a guess. I would also be interested if anyone knows for sure what tuning he is actually using.
