Hello good people,I just bought a 5 string banjo last week and i came across a nice beginner song i wanted to learn. It looks like its normally played with a 4 string tenor banjo?The song is called 'The Kerry Polka'I was wandering if someone here could helm me out with how to tune the banjo for this song and what the tabs might be for a 5 string banjo.Greetings

Here's the mandolin tab fromtraditionalmusic.co.uk/folk-mu...polka.htmWhenever you want to change mando tabs to 5 string tabs raise the first string by 2 frets and lower the the second string by 2 frets.
