Hey guys! Just writing this blog to ask the people of Banjo Hangout if they know of any good alternative tunings for folk and country music on the banjo. Feedback is much appreciated...

There are three really popular tunings .the one for G & A (+2 with a capo A )is gDGBD or standard tuning ...if you just pull up the second string to C you get a minor tuning great for dorian tunes. gDGCD (also know as sawmill tuning of G Suspended 4th . From that tuning if you drop the fourth string to C you get a double C tuning (Or capo at +2 you get a double D tuning .. gCGCD .. If you then pull the first string up to E you have a full C tuning of gCGCE .. If starting from G tuning again and you drop the second string to A the third string to F# the fourrth left at D and the fifth pulled up to A you get a full D tuning or aDF#AD .Bring the F3back up to G and you get a banjo version of DADGAD od D sus 4 . All the best , Guy
