Forgot about this tune and remembered it again last night. Recently finished this low bass 6-string banjo and actually was what led me to remember this tune again as I started playing part of the melody on it.
I have this banjo strung with the Aquila Alabastro guitar set, allowing me to tune it down to D, or dDADF#A (gGDGBD relative). I originally built a low bass gourd banjo strung in the same fashion, and wanted to try it with a normal banjo set up as I had the rim set aside, eventually to make a neck for it. It could also be strung to normal pitch, using a regular Nylgut set with the wound fourth string from the Minstrel set for the low G, which I might play around with later on.
