Banjo tuning

Posted by ccress on Tuesday, October 4, 2011

Well I got a questions..For years I've tuned my banjo in G modal..which I like and I was told years ago that its the same as sawmill tuning. The other day a friend told me that sawmill tuning was Not the same as G modal. Can anyone shed some light on this??

G modal and Sawmill are the same. Not sure why your friend would make that statement.

Cause hes a man and I'm not!!Hahha!I don't know either..I've played that G modal tuning for years(sawmill) and the other evening I tuned to it and he said that I wasn't in sawmill tuning!! He is trying to learn how to clawhammer and of course women know nothing!! Hahha!!I thought maybe he may have researched it,but when I asked him what the tuning was he said he didn't know..only I wasn't in sawmill tuning..Men!!(Sorry guys..thats only for the men that are Not on here)Hahah!!!

Hahah!!! No..he wasn't.Hes just the type that is never wrong..or think hes never wrong..A very nice guy tho..but he argued the fact that G modal and sawmill tuning were different.So I tuned to C minor and really confused him and told him it was D minor..hahah!!!
