First Video Upload 'bile dem cabbage down'

Posted by Max Sand on Thursday, January 19, 2012

like this

This is my own improv. Slow but will get the speed later.

The sound from my banjo is a bit tinny and is probably due to the make or else it's my Casio camera upload. Anyway when i get good i'll treat myself to a banjo upgrade  :)   Reckon about five years.

Ya that's super for sure and love to hear it in a diffrent key . Rut row !!!!! !!! Here comes the learner question .... Ok playing in tabulature like that and playing in the key of C instead of G, i noticed you did'nt have a capo so did you tune the 4th string to C or something like that and maybe change second also ? . If that's the case would love for some one to tell me what strings to change to play in key of D and key of C and also A if they know . I could'nt find any easy understandable info on this .

Hey Scott, sorry for the confusion man. I totally f'd up. It was played in G. Don't know why i said C on that vid. But if you want to transpose to C here it is:
instead of G you play C, instead of D you play G, instead of C you play F. This works for 7th's as well i.e. if it's D7, change it to G7.

Thank ya Max . I do transpose from one key to another like you got so i don't have to have chord changes on seprate song sheets of diffrent keys to play the same song in but i did find part of my awnser to the playing tabulature i think so let me throw this one out there . Ok say the tabulature is in the key of G which is where your" playing strings" and" not chords"like 3rd string second fret then 2nd string 4 fret idea and stuff l like how boil cabbage goes and you want to play in the key of C . From what i was told you play in" C Tuning " which is turn your d strings (1st & 4th ) and make them c so instead of 1st-string d-b-g-d-g you now have 1st string c-b-g-c-g . I got this info from guitar guy and don't if it's 100 % right yet but still wonder about what the other keys for tuning also .He did'nt have the awnser on that . I had some one show me this before on c and it seemed they changed the second and forth string to c from b & d so looking for that second opinion too. Why i' asking is because i see some tabulature songs say play in key of c or others and doesn't say capo on certain fret like some songs do . The big red scruggs book is like this . Ok anyways hope that was confusing enough for today "chuckles" See when i seen ya play boil the cabbage ya got my interest in playing it in c to see what it sound like and might sound super . Will let ya know . Scott barn'billy

yo Scott, I wouldn't think you need to change the tuning of your banjo to play in a different key. For instance in songs like Bobby McGee there is a key change halfway through the song from key of G into key of E. You wouldn't stop to detune your guitar or banjo to play that. So here's my take on this..I'm playing in key of G and decide i want to play in key of C. So I just take the individual notes and transpose them the same way i would transpose the chords. To do this I would look at a fingerboard chart, see where the new notes are and then write the new tab and play accordingly. Alternatively you could use a capo.
To me changing tuning is a different animal altogether and in guitar terms it is used to get a totally different sound. For instance, guitars are tuned in E. So you want to play Joni Mitchell's 'big yellow taxi' which is in A tuning. In this case you need to change your gitbox to A tuning and also play a totally different set of chords than you would if it was in E.
So what i'm saying here is that 'tuning an instrument' and 'key changes' are totally different aspects of playing.
Hope this makes some sense lol
