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.

Here's the mandolin tab from

Whenever 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.
